The middle thyroid vein (Latin: vena thyreoidea media) collects the blood from the lower part of the thyroid gland, and after being joined by some veins from the larynx and trachea, ends in the lower part of the internal jugular vein.
This vein is subjected for dissection as a part of surgical procedures on the thyroid.
