CUESTAS, Eduardo; BUSSO, Raúl; BARCUDI, Silvina  y  TAPIA, Natalia. A case of a child with bad odor. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2005, vol.65, n.4, pp. 341-344. ISSN 1669-9106.

The odor emitted by a patient may be one of the first major clues leading to an early diagnosis. Certain conditions produce a characteristic smell and several diseases are associated with a specific odor. We report an illustrative case and review olfactory physiology, the value of smell in physical examination, and finally discuss several illnesses associated with unusual odors.

Palabras clave : unusual odors; children; nasal foreign bodies.
