HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Term:Macroglossia

Accession:HP:0000158 term browser browse the term
Definition:Increased length and width of the tongue.
Comment:Normal standards do not exist. Large size usually leads to protrusion of the tongue. This is an acknowledged bundled term, but due to its frequent usage and relative paucity of situations that would call for separate individual assessments of tongue dimensions, the bundled term is retained. Micrognathia may give the false appearance of a large tongue.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Abnormally large tongue;   Hyperplasia of the tongue;   Hypertrophy of the tongue;   Increased size of tongue;   Large tongue;   Tongue hypertrophy
 broad_synonym: Glossal hypertrophy;   Lingual hyperplasia;   Lingual hypertrophy
 alt_id: HP:0000203
 xref: MSH:D008260;   SNOMEDCT_US:25273001;   UMLS:C0024421
