Corona virus disease (COVİD -19) can cause neurological symptoms and complications. These findings can be seen in central nervous system, musculoskeletal and peripheral systems. Many sources use MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) as the imaging technique to diagnose anosmia due to COVİD-19, and to analyze the involvement of the olfactory nerve and the olfactory bulb.

A 25- year- old female patient presented to our clinic, with complains of prolonged anosmia for nine months. Radiological imaging was done, showing the right hemisphere olfactory area lesion, clinical follow up findings was discussed.
