You know I love me some anatomical anomalies! This one holds a special place in my heart. One day when @mariaqualtieri was about 2 she opened her mouth wide to stick her tongue out and I saw this flap that looked like a mutant second tongue and I was like WTF😳😳😳😳. I asked the doctor about it and he said, oh that’s just her epiglottis, it’s cool.
I was just emailed about this condition and I got so excited I ask mom to take a photo.
An elongated high-rising epiglottis can represent normal anatomical variation in kids. As long as the child is not complaining of throat symptoms, it’s nothing to worry about!
