There is a lot of talk these days about loss of smell as a symptom of COVID-19 disease. Although there is no agreement neither within medical  circles nor the general public, the claim that loss of smell is a sign of coronavirus disease wins ground.  In the following article a US professor of medicine explains that loss of smell (anosmia)  is observed in other medical conditions, not only COVID-18. Additionally it is not present in all COVID-19 patients. Read here the anatomical basis and the significance of anosmia for the  coronavirus disease.

Cranial Nerves for Medical Students: with clinical correlations by Dr. Michael M. Nikoletseas This is a unique book. Written by a professor of Medicine who spent years teaching medical anatomy in the laboratory as well the lecture hall of USA medical schools, this book teaches you the cranial nerves in three dimensional space. You need to know the cranial nerves in three dimensional space; knowing the cranial nerves in lists, tables and mnemonics is useless for practicing physicians. An additional unique feature of this book is the connections it makes to neuroanatomy which is traditionally taught in the second semester to first-year medical students in the USA. Lastly, physicians, especially neurosurgeons and radiologists, will find the detailed tracing of cranial nerves in the cranium useful
