abstract

The clinical presentation of iron deficiency can be very heterogeneous, including various oral and other mucosal problems. Here, in this case, we report the patient with burning mouth and dysphagia symptoms where iron deficiency was found to be the underlying cause after several months of investigations. This clinical syndrome is called Plummer-Vinson syndrome. It is sporadic with an incidence less than 0.1% of patients suffering from iron deficiency anemia.
