False enlargement includes any of the following conditions, which force the tongue to sit in an abnormal position:
True enlargement can be subdivided into 2 main subcategories: congenital causes and acquired causes.
I will offer a tip if you answer more, thank you.
One doctor said she had big tonsils and retrognathism and then the other one said he thought she had slight retrognathism but mostly enlarged tongue and tonsils. We are now going to see another specialist for this. I want to know what questions should I ask and what should I lean towards in looking up? Could she just have a big tongue with none of the above conditions could it just be that and her tonsils or is there usually something that caused it? She was born on time 7lbs 6oz 21inches, she cried a lot so they put her on prevacid at 4months then she quit taking it at about 1 years old. She has been hospitalized 2 times for being really sick and they could never figured out what was wrong. The first time she was 8 months and had low blood sugar and was acidic we were in the hospital for 5 days. the 2nd she was 4 and had a high fever and dehydrated and we were in the hospital for about 5 days. When she gets sick she always gets really sick with a high fever and such. She has never had any diagnoses of anything and is otherwise healthy. She has not growth or development issues. She is having sleeping issues and that is why they looked at her mouth, she had her adnoids taken out at about 2 with tubes at that time. What should I look at or ask the doctor??
