In patients with gastric or duodenal ulcer there is frequently found a characteristic change in the tongue consisting of solitary or multiple epithelial defects. These occur chiefly in the posterior segment of the tongue, either in the mid-line or anterior to the circumvallate papillae. They are frequently symmetrical but may be unilateral and exhibit a defect which lays bare the corium. They are round or oval, frequently elongated, are entirely superficial, non-painful and give the impression of superficial ulcers. In size they range from 2 to 8 m.m. in diameter. Glaessner has seen these lesions in more than 50 cases.
