Introduction: Burning mouth syndrome is an enigmatic condition whose etiopathogenic origin remains largely unknown and whose treatment remains unsatisfactory. It is often considered to be of “psychosomatic” origin, and this etiology is frequently reported in the French medical literature. Corpus: This narrative review examines the arguments supporting this point of view, in its historical, clinical, and therapeutic aspects, in order to shed light on the patientʼs point of view. Conclusion: The etiopathogenic uncertainty does not let us give the patient an erroneous conception of the affliction.
Key words: burning mouth syndrome / stomatodynia / pain / psychogenic
