Geogrpahic tongue: rates among HIV poz people

Dec 24, 2003

Is there a higher rate of geographic tongue among HIV positive people? I see different reports, some saying that there is a higher rate and others that there is not. Since HIV infected people have a higher incidence of skin problems, one would think it logical that geographic tongue would be part of it?

Many thanks. Happy holidays!

Response from Dr. Young

I'm not aware of any data on the rates of geo tongue among persons with or without HIV. Either way, the "disease" is not really of any clinical significance. BY
