A revision of the Balsaminaceae of Myanmar is presented based on herbarium collections and a field trip in 2015. Sixty-five species, unevenly distributed across one monotypic (Hydrocera) and one species-rich genus (Impatiens), are recognised. An identification key to species is presented. Twenty species are new records for the country, 17 names are typified and seven species names are synonymized. For each species, a description of the morphology, phenology, ecology and distribution range is provided.
