Sažetak
Burning mouth syndrome is characterized by a burning sensation in the tongue or other oral sites, usually in the absence of clinical and laboratory findings. BMS often occurs with a range of medical and dental conditions, from nutritional deficiencies and menopause to dry mouth and allergies. The treatment of burning mouth syndrome is usually directed at its symptoms. Studies generally support the use of low dosages of clonazepam chlordiazepoxide and tricyclic antidepressants. This report presents the case of a 55-year-old woman presented to the clinic with burning mouth symptoms. Clinical and laboratory evaluations allowed us to make a diagnosis of burning mouth syndrome. Because she suffered from depression we consulted a psychiatrist and initiated treatment with paroxetin (20 mg/day). After two week the patient reported a 20% improvement (a decrease from seven to five on visual analogical scale). After six weeks of treatmnet the burning symptoms disappeared
