The parotid space is a roughly pyramidal space, the broad elongated base facing laterally, formed by the superficial layer of the deep cervical fascia overlying the superficial lobe of the parotid gland, and its apex pointing medially. It is traversed by the external carotid artery, retromandibular vein and facial nerve. Contents parotid glands Parotid Gland Anatomy. Boundaries of Parotid Gland • Posterolateral to masseter muscle & mandible • Anterior to mastoid process • Medial margin extends thru stylomandibular tunnel with deepest portion positioned in the prestyloid compartment • Surrounded by superficial layer of the deep cervical fascia. T1 Axial image highlighting the parotid gland Facial nerve is the most superficial structure passing throughthe parotid gland. It enters the gland through the posteromedial surface and divides into five terminal branches viz. temporal, zygomatic, buccal, marginal mandibular & cervical. The terminal branches leave the gland through the anteromedial surface and emerge along its anterior border The parotid (para = around, otic = ear) gland is the largest out of the 3 pairs of salivary glands, viz. parotid gland, submandibular, and sublingual. It is composed almost completely of serous alveoli. The parotid gland is lobulated, yellowish-brown, and weighs about 25 grams The superior boundary of the parotid gland is the zygomatic arch. Inferiorly, the tail of the parotid gland extends down to the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM). The tail of the parotid gland extends posteriorly over the superior border of the SCM toward the mastoid tip and the deep lobe lies within the PPS

Anatomical Structure. Structurally, the submandibular glands are a pair of elongate, flattened hooks which have two sets of arms; superficial and deep The major function of the salivary glands is to secrete saliva, which plays a significant role in lubrication, digestion, immunity, and the overall maintenance of homeostasis within the human body. 1. Parotid gland. Parotid gland is the largest salivary glands; Ocured in pair; weight:15-30 gm; Location: It lies on each side of face in front of the ears, covering the masseter muscle at posterior. The boundaries of each parotid gland- Superior border -Zygom Description. The parotid gland, the largest of the three, varies in weight from 14 to 28 gm. It lies upon the side of the face, immediately below and in front of the external ear. The main portion of the gland is superficial, somewhat flattened and quadrilateral in form, and is placed between the ramus of the mandible in front and the mastoid process and Sternocleidomastoideus behind. The major salivary glands: You have three different sets of major glands on each side of your face: Parotid glands: Located near the ears; Submandibular glands: Near your jaw; Sublingual glands: Under the floor of your mouth; The minor salivary glands: You also have hundreds of microscopic glands located around the mouth and throat area
The parotid glands lie between the skin and the masseter muscle, near the ears. They secrete saliva into the mouth through the parotid duct, which is located near the second upper molar tooth the structures that surround and contact the parotid gland, forming the boundaries of the parotid space: anteriorly, the ramus of the mandible flanked by the masseter and medial pterygoid muscles; medially, the pharyngeal wall, carotid sheath and structures originating from the styloid process; posteriorly, the mastoid process, sternocleidomastoid.

The parapharyngeal space, also known as the prestyloid parapharyngeal space , is a deep compartment of the head and neck around which most other suprahyoid fascial spaces are arranged. It consists largely of fat, neurovascular structures, and, in some definitions, the retromandibular part of the deep lobe of the parotid gland These are relatively rare malignancies of salivary glands and account for between 5% and 25% of parotid gland cancers. They arise from pre-existing benign adenomas. Pathologically, they are described as having both a benign lesion such as an adenoma plus a carcinoma. The malignant component is thus epithelial in origin

The Parotid Glands: Mumps. Infections of the nasal passages and pharynx can attack any salivary gland. The parotid glands are the usual site of infection with the virus that causes mumps (paramyxovirus). Mumps manifests by enlargement and inflammation of the parotid glands, causing a characteristic swelling between the ears and the jaw Lymph Node Levels of Head and Neck. There are around 800 lymph nodes in the human body and of these approximately 300 are in the head and neck region. Pathological conditions including tumors, infection and inflammation, etc of the head and neck region can cause abnormal enlargement of these cervical lymph nodes
Robar et al. studied the parotid anatomical changes every week during radiation therapy in 15 head and neck cancer patients and found that despite the movement of the outside boundaries to the midline (with an average of 2.6 mm and 1.9 mm for the left and right parotid glands, resp.), the parotid centers remained unchanged negative regulation of larval salivary gland boundary specification (GO:0045710) is_a negative regulation of salivary gland boundary specification negative regulation of adult salivary gland boundary specification (GO:0045709) is_a negative regulation of salivary gland boundary specificatio -Minor or ectopic salivary gland • Boundaries: - Anterior border - pharynx and esophagus (buccopharyngeal fascia) - Posterior border - alar layer of deep fascia - Superior border - skull base - Inferior border - superior mediastinum • Combines with buccopharyngeal fascia a The minor salivary glands in the retromolar trigone have rarely been studied.

Major salivary glands are visible as three paired organs: parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands. The parotid gland is, for practical purposes, divided into superficial and deep lobes Masses of the other cases were mostly encapsulated with ambiguous boundary to the surrounding parotid gland tissues. Cross sections of the masses in Cases #1, 3, and 4 were solid, presenting. Aplasia/hypoplasia of salivary glands. Aplasia of the salivary glands is a rare condition that usually affects the parotid and submandibular glands. Single or multiple glands may be absent or hypoplastic. Exact aetiology remains unknown; however, the condition has been attributed to first and second branchial arch abnormalities
According to the medical charts, physical examination of the 11 patients revealed solid or cystic mobile masses inside the parotid gland, with or without associated mild tenderness. B-ultrasound and/or CT showed clear boundaries within the parotid gland. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) was not performed in any of the cases The roots and trunks of brachial plexus and their branches lie in posterior triangle of neck. The roots are formed by ventral rami of C5 -T1 spinal nerves. There are three trunks viz. upper, middle and lower. The upper trunk is formed by the union of C5 and C6 roots, middle trunk is continuation of C7 root and lower trunk is formed by the union. a case of deep lobe parotid gland pleomorphic adenoma involving the parapharyngeal space in a 38 year old female diagnosed by using MRI scan and cytopathology Ultrasonography of the parotid gland suggested a mixed mass of the left parotid gland, with a size of about 3.29 × 2.48 cm, unclear boundaries, regular shape, slightly lower echo inside the parenchyma, uneven distribution, a large number of thick and small calcified plaques, and sparse blood flow signal Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common salivary gland neoplasm, accounting for 63% of all parotid gland tumours. Most tumours originate in the superficial lobe but, more rarely; these tumours may involve the deep lobe of the parotid gland, growing medially and occupying the parapharyngeal space. It is generally considered to be a benign tumour, even if this lesion presents several histological.
Accessory Parotid Tissue In approximately 20% of the population, accessory parotid tissue is present in the buccal space, and this is usually just anterior to the parotid gland hilum, overlying the anterior margin of the masseter muscle (2).

SIGNIFICANCE: Our detailed analysis of several aspects of nonlocal means-based segmentation yields new insights about patch and neighborhood sizes together with the inclusion of location information. The presented approach advances the state-of-the-art in the segmentation of parotid glands for radiation therapy planning The visceral fascia (deepest layer of MLDCF) adheres to the visceral structures of the neck, including the pharynx, larynx, esophagus, trachea, thyroid gland, and parathyroid glands. Anteriorly and laterally, the PPS abuts the masticator and parotid spaces, respectively. The SLDCF splits to envelop these spaces . Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is characterised histo-logically by a striking resemblance to mammary duct carcinoma and is included with the latter in the 1991 World Health Organization classification. Salivary duct carcinoma is thought to be a distinct malignancy of the major salivary glands, because of its highly aggressive behaviour [1-5] Salivary gland tissue has been shown to display a wide diversity of pathology encompassing inflammatory, obstructive, infectious, neoplastic and systemic disease. Inflammatory and obstructive disease within salivary gland tissue accounts for the majority of patients seeking treatment for their symptoms whereas the incidence of salivary gland.
. The Parapharyngeal space is an inverted pyramid with its base at the skull base and its apex at the Greater Cornu of the Hyoid bone, bounded medially by the pharyngeal. Automatic segmentation of parotid glands in head and neck CT images for IMRT planning has drawn attention in recent years. Although previous approaches have achieved substantial success by reaching high overall volume-wise accuracy, suboptimal segmentations are observed on the interior boundary of the gland where the contrast is poor against the adjacent muscle groups
Results of treatment for patients with salivary gland carcinoma have improved in recent years, most likely due to earlier diagnosis and the use of more effective locoregional therapy. Salivary gland tumors are treated surgically, often in conjunction with postoperative radiation therapy when the tumor is malignant. Good results rest strongly on the performance of an adequate, en bloc initial. Inferior tail of parotid is between the ramus of the mandible and sternocleidomastoid muscle, overlying the digastric muscle. Deep border is the prestyloid compartment of the parapharyngeal space. Superficial and deep lobes of the parotid are divided by the facial nerve. Eighty percent of the parotid parenchyma is the superficial lobe
