... Trimethylaminuria [TMAU] and Fecal Body Odor [FBO] syndrome ...... Although TMAU, which used to be commonly known as ‘fish odor syndrome’, is the only reasonably documented unaffiliated systemic body odor, the most common complaint on forums even by persons diagnosed with TMAU is known as ‘fecal body odor’ (FBO), an odor emitted from the whole body. In addition, others describe their unusual body odor to also be of bowel odors, gas, garbage, sewage, rotten egg, rotten fish, and burning rubber amongst other unpleasant odors. Before the internet, most sufferers thought they had a unique problem...Presently, it is not known if TMAU and FBO are the same, similar or overlapping disorders.
