Abstract

Of 22 patients attending an outpatient cancer chemotherapy clinic, 8 reported experiencing clinic-associated odors and tastes when away from the clinic. These experiences are best described as pseudohallicinations and are closely associated with pretreatment nausea and extensive chemotherapy. The authors suggest possible explanations for this phenomenon.
