Normal tongue?
Oct 21, 2001

I noticed that the definition for Oral Hairy Leukoplakia is a lesion that is corrugated. I noticed that my tongue looks corrugated on the sides. Is that normal, or something to be alarmed about?

Thank you for your time

Response from Dr. Feinberg

OHL doesn't just look "corrugated", it is white and looks shaggy or hairy.

question---- cbc
Normal CBC
