The olfactory reference syndrome treated with escitalopram: A case report
MetadataShow full item record
Olfactory reference syndrome (ORS) is a clinical condition that causes patients to be excessively anxious about emitting body odors that may be offensive for other people. This causes heavy distress and depression, even leading to suicides. The ORS is classifised under different categories. In this paper, we report a patient with ORS. She has a preoccupation of foul body odor emanating from her anal region which we treated with escitalopram. We also discuss, within the framework of this case, the place of ORS in systems of clinical classified and in literature.
