This article is from PLoS ONE, volume 9.AbstractTools for measuring olfactory function in adults have been well established. Although studies have shown that olfactory impairment in children may occur as a consequence of a number of diseases or head trauma, until today no consensus on how to evaluate the sense of smell in children exists in Europe. Aim of the study was to develop a modified -Sniffin Sticks- odor identification test, the -Sniffin Kids- test for the use in children. In this study 537 children between 6-17 years of age were included. Fourteen odors, which were identified at a high rate by children, were selected from the -Sniffin Sticks- 16-item odor identification test. Normative date for the 14-item -Sniffin Kids- odor identification test was obtained. The test was validated by including a group of congenital anosmic children. Results show that the -Sniffin Kids- test is able to discriminate between normosmia and anosmia with a cutoff value of 7 points on the odor identification test. In addition the test-retest reliability was investigated in a group of 31 healthy children and shown to be ρ = 0.44. With the 14-item odor identification -Sniffin Kids- test we present a valid and reliable test for measuring olfactory function in children between ages 6–17 years.
