Objectives Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) refers to a chronic orofacial pain disorder usually unaccompanied by mucosal lesions or other clinical signs of organic disease; it’s characterized by both positive (burning pain, dysgeusia and dysesthesia) and negative (loss of taste or altered and paraesthesia) sensory symptoms involving lips and tongue. Aims: to make an effective and correct diagnosis and a specific pictures of the neurological state of BMS in patients that have the same symptoms just explained and show how there is a neuropathic component involved. Methods 7 self-report questionnaires were administrated to 6 patients: the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 that values hypochondriasis, depression, hysteria, psychopathic deviation, masculinity-femininity, paranoia, psychasthenia, schizophrenia, hypomania, social introversion; the DSM IV-TR for the mental disorders; the Beck Depression Inventory for the severity of depression; the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for anxiety; the Eating Disorder Inventory-2 for psychological features frequently related to anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa; the Eating Attitude Test for a standardized measure about eating disorders; the Body Attitudes Questionnaire that measures six attitudinal dimensions (attractiveness, disparagement, feeling fat, salience, lower body fatness and strength); and a new questionnaire based on the International Classification of Headache Disorders. Results All the patients replied honestly and clearly the test so we could get a personal and complete profile and make an identikit about the prototype of BMS syndrome’s patient. Conclusions We can get a stereotype of patient on which base the diagnosis of BMS not just by painful symptoms and clinical signs but also by psychological and neurological characteristics.

Abstract

Objectives Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) refers to a chronic orofacial pain disorder usually unaccompanied by mucosal lesions or other clinical signs of organic disease; it’s characterized by both positive (burning pain, dysgeusia and dysesthesia) and negative (loss of taste or altered and paraesthesia) sensory symptoms involving lips and tongue. Aims: to make an effective and correct diagnosis and a specific pictures of the neurological state of BMS in patients that have the same symptoms just explained and show how there is a neuropathic component involved. Methods 7 self-report questionnaires were administrated to 6 patients: the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 that values hypochondriasis, depression, hysteria, psychopathic deviation, masculinity-femininity, paranoia, psychasthenia, schizophrenia, hypomania, social introversion; the DSM IV-TR for the mental disorders; the Beck Depression Inventory for the severity of depression; the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for anxiety; the Eating Disorder Inventory-2 for psychological features frequently related to anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa; the Eating Attitude Test for a standardized measure about eating disorders; the Body Attitudes Questionnaire that measures six attitudinal dimensions (attractiveness, disparagement, feeling fat, salience, lower body fatness and strength); and a new questionnaire based on the International Classification of Headache Disorders. Results All the patients replied honestly and clearly the test so we could get a personal and complete profile and make an identikit about the prototype of BMS syndrome’s patient. Conclusions We can get a stereotype of patient on which base the diagnosis of BMS not just by painful symptoms and clinical signs but also by psychological and neurological characteristics.
