Taste & Smell Disorders

The smell receptors are located high in the midline sinuses.  Taste is very dependent on smell.  Any loss or alteration of smell requires evaluation of the sinuses and the brain.

Nasal-sinus issues such as a severe deviated septum, chronic sinusitis or sinus polyps can adversely affect smell. 

Often a Sinus CT and/or MRI will be needed to rule-out disease and tumors.
