What’s your diagnosis?
I’ll post the correct answer in a few days!
Ankyloglossia (known as tongue tie)
a tongue tie
frenulum linguae brevis
Ankyloglossia (or tongue tie).
A sporadic condition in which the frenulum lingae is shorter in length. Because of this, the tongue can't be stretched out, but it doesn't often cause problems in speaking or breast feeding. Surgical intervention is rarely needed.
Separate names with a comma.
