Information About Macroglossia

(also known as enlarged tongue)

Macroglossia is a disorder in which the tongue is larger than normal. It is usually caused by an increase in the amount of tissue on the tongue, rather than a tumor or other growth. This condition can be seen in certain inherited or congenital disorders.
