LEVATOR GLANDULAE THYROIDEAE, A FIBROMUSCULOGLANDULAR BAND WITH PYRAMIDAL LOBE: A CASE REPORT
Thyroid gland is an endocrine gland, situated in the lower part of the front and sides of the neck. Among other endocrine glands, it is well known for its developmental anomalies. Levator glandulae thyroideae is a fibromuscular band which connects the isthmus of thyroid gland with the hyoid bone. During a routine dissection in the department of anatomy of SRM medical college, levator glandulae thyroideae was seen with the pyramidal lobe on the left side in a 55year old male cadaver. The knowledge on anatomical variations of the thyroid gland may help the surgeons to plan a safe thyroid surgery.
