Étude observationnelle sur un échantillon de 100 patients du parcours de soin avant le diagnostic de stomatodynie primaire

Abstract : Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS) is poorly known to health professionals, with a prevalence in the general population of between 0.1% and 16.9%. It leads to medical wandering of patients and delayed diagnosis. This problem, combined with the lack of literature on the subject, leads to increased patient suffering. Between 11 February 2019 and 28 February 2020, we conducted a monocentric retrospective clinical study within the Medical Activity Unit of mucous membrane pathologies and chronic orofacial pain at Bordeaux University Hospital. 100 patients with BMS were included in the study. Analysis of the results showed an average wait of 25.3 months before diagnosis, a significant number of false diagnoses as well as the implementation of unsuitable treatments and complementary examinations. The vagrancy of which patients are victims leads to moral and financial damage. Our work has the longer-term aim of raising awareness among ENT practitioners and general practitioners and optimising the care of patients with BMS in order to reduce the waiting time before their diagnosis.
