Subsequently, other studies have also shown increased incidence of complications in patients with circumvallate
placenta like abruptio placentae, preterm births, IUGR, oligohydramnios, non-reassuring foetal heart rate patterns (4, 5) and even a study reported increased incidence of IUFD as compared to controls (5).

The pedicled fleshy mass extended anteriorly up to the circumvallate
line; posteriorly, it stopped short of the vallecula and crossed the midline to the right.
In mammals, four different types of tongue papillae (fungiform, circumvallate
, foliate and filiform) can be found on the dorsal surface (Emura et al.
In studies conducted by Benischke, Faye Petersen, Maulik and Salafia et al circumvallate
placenta, circummarginate, velamentous insertion of the cord and placenta previa were suggested as possible causes of IUGR.
Clinically, median rhomboid glossitis manifests as a well-delineated erytbematous area located along the midline posterior dorsal tongue just anterior to the circumvallate
papillae (figure 1).
