GEOGRAPHIC TONGUE: CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOPATHOLOGY AND TREATMENT

Author: Sanketh DS, MDS

INTRODUCTION AND ETIOLOGY

Geographic tongue, also called erythema migrans and benign migratory glossitis, is a common benign condition, usually occurring on the dorsal and lateral surfaces of the tongue in approximately 1-2% of the population. The cause is unknown, although there are reports of increased frequency of this condition in people with stress and psoriasis of skin. Geographic tongue is postulated to also be associated with other conditions like atopy and Reiter’s syndrome.
