• This study evaluated whether 79 atrophic glossitis (AG) patients with microcytosis and 985 AG patient without microcytosis had higher frequencies of anemia, hematinic deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA) positivity than 532 healthy control subjects.

  • If the glossitis is caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotics, antifungal or other antimicrobial medications may be prescribed. (medicalmalpracticehelp.com)
  • Glossitis can be due to a large number of causes including bacterial or viral infection, mechanical trauma (e.g. sharp teeth, restorations or appliances), burns, irritation from alcohol or tobacco, or allergic reactions. (oup.com)
  • Herpetic geometric glossitis: a distinctive pattern of lingual herpes simplex virus infection. (springer.com)
  • Glossitis can also be associated with more complex disorders such as pernicious anemia, B-vitamin deficiencies, and syphilis. (medicalmalpracticehelp.com)
  • Persistent glossitis can occur with vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiencies, iron deficiency anemia, syphilis, oral lichen planus and aphthous ulcers. (livestrong.com)
  • Apart from pernicious anemia discussed above, any other cause of vitamin B12 deficiency can cause glossitis, which tends to be painful, smooth and shiny. (wikipedia.org)
  • This study evaluated whether 79 atrophic glossitis (AG) patients with microcytosis and 985 AG patient without microcytosis had higher frequencies of anemia, hematinic deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA) positivity than 532 healthy control subjects.

  • Many conditions can cause glossitis via malnutrition or malabsorption, which creates the nutritional deficiencies described above, although other mechanisms may be involved in some of those conditions listed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Only the veiled chameleons revealed corresponding pathological findings in the form of glossal hemorrhage, granulomatous glossitis, pharyngitis, dermatitis and/or visceral mycosis. (infection.vet)
  • Sequencing of the ribosomal genes yielded five different genotypes, with genotype A being strongly correlated with dermatitis, and remaining genotypes with pharyngitis and glossitis. (infection.vet)
