Abstract

To summarize the diversity of assessment and management for chronic orofacial pain associated with a disease (COFPAD) in children. We performed a review of the literature up to May 2012. Hetero-evaluation and self-assessment are used according to age of children. Strict management of the cause is not sufficient for children with COFPAD without a multidisciplinary approach combining pharmacotherapy, psychology and physiotherapy.

Conclusion

The multidisciplinary approach is the key of management for children with COFPAD.
