We report the case of a 51-year-old woman with anosmia and chronic sensory ataxic neuropathy. Olfactory tests suggested neurosensory anosmia. Immunocytochemical analysis showed serum antibodies against dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells and olfactory neurons, in the absence of other known causes of anosmia and sensory neuropathy. Clinical and laboratory data suggested a slow autoimmune process affecting dorsal root ganglion and olfactory cells.

Abstract

We report the case of a 51-year-old woman with anosmia and chronic sensory ataxic neuropathy. Olfactory tests suggested neurosensory anosmia. Immunocytochemical analysis showed serum antibodies against dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells and olfactory neurons, in the absence of other known causes of anosmia and sensory neuropathy. Clinical and laboratory data suggested a slow autoimmune process affecting dorsal root ganglion and olfactory cells.
