Disturbances of taste and smell

Establish whether what is perceived as a taste defect is not in fact a defect in the sense of smell . It may be difficult to differentiate between the perceptions of smell and taste since some of the taste perceptions are perceived as smells that have travelled to the olfactory epithelium via the nasopharynx. Salivary secretion is a prerequisite for the ability to taste.
