Caption: Geographic tongue. Male patient sticking out his tongue showing a pitted map-like surface, giving the condition its common name. Geographic tongue (migratory glossitis) causes the tongue to develop irregular, smooth areas. It is a common condition whose cause is unknown but thought to be either genetic or connected to allergies. There is no cure, but the condition is benign and relatively painless.
