Abstract

Congenital anosmia is frequently associated with some developmental abnormalitites; its occurance as an isolated defect is extremely rare. In children, olfactory pathologies can be difficult to determine due to their restriction to express the symptoms. The diagnosis is, often later, in sensitive circumstances. We described a case of 15-year-old-girl with isolated olfactory bulbs absense.
