Benign migratory glossitis also known as the geographical 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 the appearance is of 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 case of geographic tongue in a 2.5-year-old child.
