Predictive factors of #smell recovery in a clinical series of 288 #COVID-19 patients with olfactory dysfunction

To evaluate potential predictive factors of smell recovery in a clinical series of 288 patients presenting olfactory dysfunction (OD) related to the COVID19. Potential correlations are sought between epidemiological, clinical and immunological characteristics of patients and the persistence of OD at 60 days. MethodsCOVID-19 positive patients presenting olfactory dysfunction were prospectively recruited from three European …
