Tongue after glossitis surgery. Stitches in a 74 year old man's tongue 5 days after an operation to remove a median rhomboid glossitis lesion. Median rhomboid glossitis is a diamond-shaped, elevated, inflammatory lesion along the midline of the tongue. It is thought to be caused by the yeast Candida albicans, which causes thrush. It is a benign condition but may cause discomfort and difficulty while eating and drinking. Treatment, when needed, is with anti- fungal drugs or, in severe cases, surgical removal of the lesion.
