RABADAN, José Antonio. Olfactory Reference Syndrome (ORS): Presentation of a Case. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2013, vol.42, n.2, pp.219-221. ISSN 0034-7450.

A 34 year old patient who was seen in the Harassment Psychiatry Unit after a series of medical visits to different specialties. The main reason for his harassment, exclusion and derision was due to his body odor. The reports issued by the other specialties ruled out any dermatological pathology, and any of the other conditions proposed by the patient. The psychiatric clinical interview, including the use of other evaluation and diagnostic techniques, suggested a differential diagnosis between a compulsive obsessive picture and mono-symptomatic psychosis.

Keywords : Bullying; Olfactory reference syndrome; Paranoid personality disorder; Schizophrenia.
