To the Editor:
Monitoring of olfactory function and diagnosis of olfactory disorders using the pen-based “Sniffin' Sticks test” is problematic during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic due to hygienic concerns. The aim of this study was to find out whether the results of olfactory testing obtained by presenting odours on a single-use filter paper is identical to performing the test by presenting the odour pens according to the manufacturer’s manual.
