Cerebriform tongue (CT) is diagnosed to be a benign clinical condition that is characterized by grooves on the dorsal surface of the tongue and referred with other terminologies such as the scrotal tongue, grooved tongue, lingua fissurata, and lingua plicata which can be chronic trauma, vitamin deficiencies, and probably not a developmental malformation. The incidence of this condition was predominant among males and found to be higher with increasing age. It is very rarely observed in children. It is usually painless and sometimes food debris accumulation can irritate. CT has been reported with the association of various systemic factors and syndromes. A case of a 62-year-old male with CT is presented along with the review of the literature.
