Benign migratory glossitis (BMG), or geographic tongue, is usually an asymptomatic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology that affects the epithelium of the tongue.The disorder is characterized by exacerbations and remissions. Cases usually resolve without any treatment. Bifid tongue without any associated syndrome is rare to occur. We present a case of 4-year-old boy with asymptomatic BMG and coexisting bifid tongue without any associated syndrome. To conclude that the clinician should be aware of such conditions as these lesions can be symptomatic in children.
