Tongue Scrotal

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see a furrowed tongue or with “grooves” (false fissures) also described as “lingua plicata, scrotal, fissured …”. In this instance as in many others this sign was not associated with symptoms.

PERSPECTIVE: “Fissured” tongue has an estimated prevalence in the general population of 2-5% and may be noted at any age although it is more frequent with aging. This sign often is a signal of Down syndrome (trisomy 21).
