ABSTRACT: Burning Mouth syndrome is a condition characterized by a burning pain or hot sensation which can be localized to the lips or tongue or more widespread in the mouth. The sensation can be continuous or intermittent. It can also be accompanied by other symptoms like dryness, an unpleasant taste, or feelings of numbness. It can increase with talking, eating hot or spicy foods, and in times of stress. It can be reduced by some foods or drink, sleep or rest and distraction. This abstract reviews the literature on this syndrome, with special reference to the etiological factors that may be involved and the clinical aspects they present. The diagnostic criteria that should be followed and the therapeutic management are discussed with reference to the most recent studies.
