Latin Nodus lymphoideus juguloomohyoideu

The juguloomohyoid lymph node (tongue node) is related to the intermediate tendon of the omohyoid muscle. It is part of deep cervical lymph nodes. As it is associated with the lymph drainage of the tongue if enlarged, it can be a sign of a tongue carcinoma.
