Tuberculous granuloma of the tongue is a rare entity and constitutes a negligible percentage of all inflammatory lesions of that organ. Herein, we report two cases of granulomatous lesion of the tongue of tuberculous origin, both presented with only a small swelling. Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and biopsy proved them to be granulomatous lesions. Antitubercular drugs (ATDs) were started, lesions healed completely without any residual effect.
