The article assesses chorda tympani and trigeminal nerve function in patients with burning mouth syndrome (BMS). According to the authors, the mean electrical taste/tingling detection thresholds ratio and the taste detection thresholds were higher in patients with BMS than in patients with secondary BMS and in control subjects. The authors concluded that chorda tympani hypofunction may play an important role in BMS pathology.
