Not known: The cause of geographic tongue is unknown but one term used to describe it, oral erythema migrans is very similar to the term used to describe skin lesions of lyme's disease, erythema chronicum migrans. That semantic similarity may suggest a closer relationship than has been shown thus far by research.
