Orodental self‐mutilation (ODSM) has not gained sufficient recognition in familial dysautonomia (FD). Among 38 patients with FD, ODSM was found in 14 (36.8%). ODSM may be due to peripheral neuropathy with insensibility to pain, which is characteristic of FD. Elimination of the sharp edges of teeth was found to be helpful.
