Geographic Tongue - Clinical features, Histopathology and Treatment

Geographic tongue is an inflammatory but harmless condition affecting the surface of your tongue.

The tongue is normally covered with tiny, pinkish-white bumps (papillae), which are actually short, fine, hairlike projections. 


With geographic tongue, patches on the surface of the tongue are missing papillae and appear as smooth, red "islands," often with slightly raised borders.
