Tongue is a sensitive organ of the oral cavity that is responsible for many vital functions like taste, swallowing, speech, mastication, speaking and breathing. Geographic tongue is a frequently encountered oral condition with a controversial etiology. Since it is an asymptomatic condition known to resolve completely on its own, it is usually discovered during routine clinical examinations. Furthermore, it warrants treatment only when it becomes symptomatic. It can be present on any surface of the tongue but the commonest site is dorsal surface, where it characteristically presents with a migratory pattern that changes in location. This case report describes the uncommon occurrence of the tongue lesion diagnosed in children which is seldom reported in the pediatric literature.
