Fungiform papillae, primarily located on the tip and lateral border, or dorsum surface of the tongue and intertwined with the filiform papillae, are mushroom-shaped epithelial elevations composed of taste buds at the upper surface overlying a core of connective tissue. Pigmented fungiform papillae of the tongue is a benign condition more common in dark-skinned adults and children, is characterized by localized hyperpigmentation which is confined to these structures. We report a case of 26 year-old-woman with pigmented fungiform papillae.
