Epidemiologic Study of Geographic Tongue Allergy and Fissured Tongue and Their Associations

Epidemiologic studies of geographic tongue, fissured tongue, allergy and their associations were conducted using data from the First Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (HANES I) and McGovern Allergy Clinic. The population characteristics of both samples were described in terms of age, sex and race. The prevalence of geographic tongue among the U.S. population is close to 1 percent and a statistically significant sex differential was found among the 35-44 year-olds. The prevalence of fissured tongue among the U.S. population is close to 4.5 percent and increases with age. It is rarely found among children under 4 years old and reaches its peak of 14.3 percent among those between 65-74 years-old. The prevalence of allergy among the U.S. population is approximately 30 percent. In children under 12 years of age, the rates average around 14 percent. For those between 12-74 years, the rates average around 24 percent. The prevalence of allergy is generally higher in boys than girls. For those older than 25 years of age, the rate is significantly higher in females than males. A significant, although weak, association was found between geographic tongue and allergy after the effects of age and sex were controlled. The occurrence of geographic tongue was found to be nearly 1.5 times higher in the allergic sample than the nonallergic one. A highly significant and strong association was found between geographic tongue and allergy in the 25-74 year-old males. No significant association was found between fissured tongue and allergy. A significant and strong association, especially in the 1-24 year-olds, was found between geographic tongue and fissured tongue. A significant difference was found in serum IgE level between males and females in the Allergy Clinic samples. Males generally exhibit a significantly higher IgE level than females, particularly in those over 25 years-old. In the Allergy Clinic Sample no significant difference in serum IgE was found between those with and without geographic tongue.

Geographic Tongue

Gomez writes, “You don't have to speak to speak truth,” and this lucid assertion is borne out in the collection as a whole. In its art, and in its silence, the poems of Geographic Tongue are undeniably and indelibly authentic.

Geographic Tongue

In Geographic Tongue, an important addition to the Pleiades Press Visual Poetry Series, Rodney Gomez weaves together themes of loss, identity, ethnicity, heritage, and the mechanics of contemporary life to create a collection as lyrically arresting as it is aesthetically stunning. These visual poems, crafted with both restraint and vitality, are visceral in their depiction of cruelty and grief at the United States–Mexico border. And yet, this charged landscape also gives rise to moments of tenderness, stillness, and wry humor. Gomez’s visual design is at once vivid and haunting, drawing together collage, diagrams, and abstract imagery into a bright, geometrically precise collection. His text casts such a powerful spell that in its absence, silence is heard as clearly as any phrase. Gomez writes, “You don't have to speak to speak truth,” and this lucid assertion is borne out in the collection as a whole. In its art, and in its silence, the poems of Geographic Tongue are undeniably and indelibly authentic.
