  • Look Inside


Reports of the pathology of taste buds have been few.

We described first a review concerning the age-changes of number and form of taste buds, degenerative process of the denervated taste buds and pathological changes in taste buds of the patients with hypogeusia, dysgeusia, hyposmia and dysosmia following influenza-like infection (Henkin et al.).

From our experiences, pathological changes in the taste buds after irradiation and of various taste disorders with no improvement are presented.
