Introduction: Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that is mainly featured by the chronic pain presence and its phisiophatology is unknown. In the EEG records it is observed a hipersensibility from the envolved areas at the pain process, which can be a resource capable to clarify its phisiophatology. Objective: It was performed a search at Pubmed, Lilacs e Scielo databases with the keywords: Electroencephalogram, electroencephalography and fibromyalgia. The exclusion criterias were the electroencephalogram use for avaliation of other clinic condition beyond fibromyalgia and repeated articles at the databases. Results: After the aplication of the eligibility criterias were found 23 articles. Conclusion: The electrical cortical activity analysis using the electroencephalogram records is set like a promising method of avaliation and identification of a fibromyalgia biomarker.
