    This is a report detailing the successful treatment of a case of anosmia with acupuncture. The patient was managed conventionally for two years with no sign of improvement. She regained the sense of smell following one session of acupuncture. Such patients should be investigated for any detectable organic cause prior to treatment with acupuncture.
