摘要

Background/Purpose: Normocytosis is defined as having the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) between 80 fL and 99.9 fL. This study evaluated whether 770 burning mouth syndrome (BMS) patients with normocytosis (so-called normocytosis/BMS patients) had significantly higher frequencies of anemia, hematinic deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA) positivity than 442 healthy control subjects or 884 BMS patients. Materials and methods: Complete blood count, serum iron, vitamin B12, folic acid, homocysteine, and GPCA levels in 884 BMS patients (including 770 normocytosis/BMS patients) and 442 healthy control subjects were measured and compared. Results: We found that 12.3%, 13.2%, 2.2%, 2.3%, 17.3%, and 10.5% of 770 normocytosis/BMS patients had blood hemoglobin (Hb), iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum GPCA positivity, respectively. Furthermore, 770 normocytosis/BMS patients had significantly higher frequencies of blood Hb, iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum GPCA positivity than 442 healthy control subjects (all P-values < 0.005). On the contrary, 770 normocytosis/BMS patients had significantly lower frequencies of blood Hb and vitamin B12 deficiencies than overall 884 BMS patients (both P-values < 0.01). Conclusion: We conclude that there are significantly higher frequencies of anemia, serum iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum GPCA positivity in normocytosis/BMS patients than in healthy control subjects. On the contrary, normocytosis/BMS patients do have significantly lower frequencies of blood Hb and vitamin B12 deficiencies than overall BMS patients.
