Baby born with the "biggest tongue ever" undergoes surgery

Little baby girl Paisley Morrison-Johnson was born with a very large tongue that made it nearly impossible for her to feed, smile or giggle. The rare condition then made her tongue grow two times its original size in less  than one month.

Paisley was finally taken for surgery and diagnosed with the disorder termed Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS) – an overgrowth condition that affects one in every 11,000 births worldwide.

According to her mother, Madison Kienow,

“Her tongue filled up her whole mouth, it was very thick and protruding out of her mouth.

“It looked she had an adult’s size tongue inside the mouth of a baby.

“Doctors told us she had one of the largest tongues they had ever seen and that the sooner she had reduction surgery the better.

“But after her first surgery it looked like her tongue had grown back to its original size and was really bothering us.

“During her second reduction surgery a massive amount of her tongue was removed and thankfully now it goes completely into her mouth.
