Benign migratory glossitis, also known as geographic tongue, is a recurrent condition of unknown etiology characterized by loss of epithelium, particularly of the filiform papillae on the dorsum of the tongue. Clinically, it appears as multifocal, circinate, irregular erythematous patches bounded by slightly elevated, white-colored keratotic bands. The condition is very common in adults and older age groups. The present article describes a rare presentation of geographic tongue in a 2.5-year-old child.
