Lymphatics of the Tongue

(Poirier and Charpy.)

The lymphatic vessels of the tongue are drained chiefly into the deep cervical glands lying between the posterior belly of the Digastricus and the superior belly of the Omohyoideus; one gland situated at the bifurcation of the common carotid artery is so intimately associated with these vessels that it is known as the principal gland of the tongue. The lymphatic vessels of the tongue may be divided into four groups:

  1. apical, from the tip of the tongue to the suprahyoid glands and principal gland of the tongue
  2. lateral, from the margin of the tongue — some of these pierce the Mylohyoideus to end in the submaxillary glands, others pass down on the Hyoglossus to the superior deep cervical glands
  3. basal, from the region of the vallate papillæ to the superior deep cervical glands
  4. median, a few of which perforate the Mylohyoideus to reach the submaxillary glands, while the majority turn around the posterior border of the muscle to enter the superior deep cervical glands.
