Looking for Tongue Diagram-Gross Pic Added 1/9
    #2216227 - 01/03/04 04:51 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I am looking for a diagram of the different regions and structures on the tongue. While observing my tongue of late I have observed various regions and structures, I am curious as to what each type is and its function.

It all comes from being sick and watching my tongue change while being sick.

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

I was brushing my teeth and tongue when I noticed some sensitivity on my tongue. Upon closer inspection I found some odd looking areas.

That cough medicine they have out there is dangerous...I was always stoned...good ol' DXM!

Here is the pic as promised. I know it looks pretty gross. I am curious about the structures pointed to in blue more so than the ones pointed to in green. The objects pointed to in green look like large taste buds. I am wondering why they are different than the smaller ones.

I looked all over the net for something that describes these structures and could find nothing.

I will try to remember and pull out my anatomy books tonight and see if there is anything in them related to your question/picture.

I am pretty sure the structures at the back of my tongue are not taste buds. The green arrows point to enlarged bud structures.

But they are unlabeled.

I checked out a book and detrmined the structures at the ends of the blue arrows are lingual tonsils.

I had no idea we had tonsils in our tongues.

Thank you, that explains the green arrowed structures (Vallate papillea). It is the vallate papillea and fungiform papillae that contain taste receptors.

I could not find out the proposed or known reason behind their difference in structure. Does anyone know?

Gray's Anatomy, Copyright 1977, page 813:

The Papillae of the Tongue.
The papillae maximae (circumvallatae) are of large size, and vary from eight to twelve in number. They are situated at the back part of the dorsum of the tongue, near its base, forming a row on each side, which, running backward and inward, meet in the middle line, like the two lines of the letter V inverted. Each papilla consists of a projection of mucous membrane from 1/20 to 1/12 of an inch wide, attached to the bottom of a cup-shaped depression of the mucous membrane; the papilla is in shape like a truncated cone, the smaller end being directed downward and attached to the tongue, the broader part of base projecting on the surface and being studded with numerous small secondary papillae, which, however are covered by a smooth layer of the epithelium. The cup-shaped depression forms a kind of fossa round the papilla, having a circular margin of about the same elevation covered with smaller papillae.

The papillae mediae (fungiformes), more numerous than the preceeding, are scattered irregularly and sparingly over the dorsum of the tongue, but are found chiefly at its sides and apex. They are easily recognized among the other papillae, by their large size, rounded eminences, and deep-red color. They are narrow at their attachment to the tongue, but broad and rounded at their free extremities, and covered with secondary papillae. Their epithelial investment is very thing.

> I had no idea we had tonsils in our tongues

The mucous membrane covering the tongue behind the foramen caecum and sulcus terminalis is thick and freely movable over the subjacent parts. It contains a large number of lymphoid follicles, which together constitute what is sometimes termed the linqual tonsil.

I just talked to my doctor today, he didn't know about lingual tonsils either. He did however suggest the same book you quoted from.

It looks like I will have to obtain a copy for reference.

Thanks Seuss, your answers are appreciated.

Gray's Anatomy can be found online in (what appears to be) its entirety at Bartleby.com

The site has many other free books available as well.
