Anatomical Variation of the Thyroid Gland - Levator glandulae thyroideae: A Case Report
Keywords:Levator glandulae thyroideae, thyroid, hyopyramidalis , thyroidectomy , pyramidal lobe
Surgical procedures on the thyroid are usually complicated by damage to the parathyroid glands, the external branch of superior laryngeal nerves, inferior laryngeal nerves, and hematoma due to vascular injury and the chance of residual thyroid tissue being left in case of cancer and Graves' disease, and the presence of anatomical variations. In this study, we describe the presence of a levator glandulae thyroideae that could misguide surgeons during surgical procedures.
