• Two cases of tongue ulcers are presented. Histopathologic examination of biopsy specimens obtained from each case showed marked submucosal and muscular infiltration of polymorphonuclear eosinophils compatible with the diagnosis of eosinophilic ulcer of the tongue. The disease entity appears to be uncommon, yet, it should be recognized as benign since in both instances, healing was spontaneous.
