Multiple chemical sensitivity: current concepts.
Institute of Clinical Dentistry, Catholic University, Rome, Italy.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MS) is characterized by a wide range of symptoms when affected patients come into contact with several chemical products. Very little is known of either the diagnosis or the suitable treatment. In this study we report the case of a 38-year-old woman, previously diagnosed as suffering from MCS, who was referred for an oral health evaluation. After removing all the existing restorations and extracting the diseased teeth, a removable partial denture without metal structure was made after testing her hypersensitivity to these materials. The one year follow-up of the patient did not show any remarkable reaction, confirming the reduction of a large number of MCS symptoms and the increase in her quality of life.
