Severe anaemia with glossitis

Yes I agree with Dr.Parkar it seems geographic tongue that is glossitis and so is the burning sensation. Any medical history? Immunocompromised patient? Rule out Candidiasis, oral Lichen planus too.

thanks Dr Jain... maintenance of oral hygiene is equally important...
