Association of Degranulated Mast Cell Count with Burning Sensation of Oral Cavity in Oral Submucous Fibrosis

Dr Sabu Paul [4] | Dr Pramod P Mathews [3]


Abstract: Aim: To assess the possible role of degranulated mast cell count in oral submucous fibrosis patients with burning sensation. Materials and methods: The degranulated mast cell count was performed with microscope fitted with a calibrated mechanical stage in the histologically diagnosed specimens of oral submucous fibrosis. It was compared with burning sensation recorded using a self assessment descriptive rating. Statistics: ANOVA was used to test the equality of means between degranulated mast cell count and burning sensation. Results: Degranulated mast cell count showed a significant increase in early cases of oral submucous fibrosis along with the burning sensation. The difference was found to be statistically significant but insignificant in advanced cases. Conclusion: The increased degranulated mast cell count has a profound effect on the burning sensation experienced in oral submucous fibrosis especially in early cases.
