Abstract

Background: The parotid gland is one of the metastatic drainage areas for malignant tumours of the head and neck area. In this study, we aimed to define the accurate number and distribution of intraparotid lymph nodes in the 84 glands of 42 fresh cadavers for implementing the data for the clinical practice.
