hallucinations(olfactory & gustatory)

Last reviewed 01/2018

These hallucinations are infrequent, but when they occur, they often occur together.

The perception has an unusual quality and may be of unpleasant odours/flavours.

These hallucinations may occur in schizophrenia and mood disorders. They may however also be due to olfactory bulb tumours or temporal lobe epilepsy.
