Osmophobia and Odor‐Triggered Headaches in Children and Adolescents: Prevalence, Associated Factors, and Importance in the Diagnosis of Migraine
TLDR
The objectives of this study are to study osmophobia and odor‐triggered headaches among headache pediatric patients and to find out if there is a link between these feelings and headaches.
Osmophobia and Headaches in Primary Care: Prevalence, Associated Factors, and Importance in Diagnosing Migraine
The aims of this study were to investigate the prevalence of osmophobia among primary headaches, evaluate the association between osmophobia and the characteristics of patients and their headaches,

Olfactory Acuity in Chronic Migraine: A Cross‐Sectional Study
This study aims to measure olfactory acuity in chronic migraine subjects, at baseline and on migraine days, and compare to age‐ and sex‐matched controls. Olfactory impairment is common in
Olfactory symptoms reported by migraineurs with and without auras
Olfaction‐related symptoms accompany migraine attacks and some, such as osmophobia, may be useful in differentiating migraine from other types of headaches. However, the types and frequencies of
Osmophobia and Taste Abnormality in Migraineurs: A Tertiary Care Study
TLDR
The study of clinical behavior is proposed, then, as a challenge to behaviorally oriented colleagues, because the behavior of good clinicians may seem idiosyncratic, but it should be possible to analyze it and evaluate outcomes.
Osmophobia in Migraine and Tension-Type Headache and Its Clinical Features in Patients With Migraine
TLDR
Osmophobia seems to be a peculiar symptom favouring the diagnosis of migraine (MoA and MA) in the differential diagnosis with ETTH, and appears structurally integrated into the migraine history of the patient.
The prevalence of allodynia, osmophobia and red ear syndrome in the juvenile headache: preliminary data
TLDR
The study shows that features like osmophobia, allodynia and red ear syndrome are not uncommon in migraine while they are absent in other types of headache.
[Non-alimentary trigger factors of migraine and tension-type headache].
TLDR
Menstruation, environmental factors, psychological effects as well as sleep disorders and fatigue are mentioned most frequently, and their importance as triggers or symptoms of a headache attack has not been conclusively determined.
A prospective study on osmophobia in migraine versus tension-type headache in a large series of attacks
TLDR
Osmophobia is a specific clinical marker of migraine, easy to ascertain and able to disentangle the sometimes challenging differential diagnosis between migraine without aura and episodic tension-type headache, recommended among the diagnostic criteria for migraine as it increases sensitivity, showing absolute specificity.

Loss of olfactory function leads to a decrease of trigeminal sensitivity.
TLDR
Amplitudes of chemo-somatosensory event-related potentials in response to suprathreshold trigeminal stimuli (CO2) were found to be smaller in patients indicating a decrease of trigeminally mediated sensations.
