Stomatopyrosis is a condition characterised by a burning sensation and pain in the mouth with normal oral mucous membrane. Several etiologic factors influence the occurrence of stomatopyrosis: systemic, local and psychogenic. In our investigation we paid particular attention to psychogenic factors in the occurrence of stomatopyrosis. Our study was carried out on a sample of 20 subjects with a symptom of stomatopyrosis and without a clinical pathological finding. The control group were of the same age, without symptoms of stomatopyrosis and with no clinical oral finding. The test was carried out by a questionnaire on general data, use of a visual analogous scale according to Reed Peterson, a thermoesthesiometer and psycho-questionnaires. The psycho-questionnaires were: depression test, adaptability test, anxiety test and emotional stability test. The results showed the occurrence of stomatopyrosis in older subjects, primarily female. The location of the symptom was mainly on the lips in 70% and on the tip of the tongue in 20%. Description of symptoms indicate that more symptoms can occur simultaneously. The majority of subjects considered the intensity of symptoms unbearable (50%), and 20% moderately bearable. The questionnaires show that depression was present in all subjects with a symptom of stomatopyrosis, in 70% severe depression, and in 80% anxiety was also severe. Poor adaptability was found in 60% of subjects and emotional instability in 70%. The study indicates that the psychogenic factor has a significant role in the etiology of stomatopyrosis.
