Fissured Tongue

Fissured tongue (Scrotal tongue)

With permission Bechara Y. Ghorayeb, MD

Fissured tongue, also known as scrotal tongue is characterized by folds and fissures in the dorsal (top) surface of the tongue.  The fissures are of variable depth and usually extend laterally from a median groove as is pictured above.   This condition does not cause any symptoms, unless food particles and debris lodge in the depths of the fissures causing a mild glossitis (inflammation of the tongue).  It is considered to be a normal form of tongue anatomy.
