This is a clinical photograph of a young boy drooling/dribbling (saliva incontinence). He also appears to be breathing with mouth open at rest and his tongue appears slightly large. If this is true macroglossia, it may be associated with an underlying syndrome such as Down’s. There is also evidence of nasal discharge and excoriation around oral cavity.
