SUBCLAVIAN VEIN
F. Subclavian vein: receives the external jugular vein which, in turn, receives

mandibular, retropharyngeal, occipital, retroauricular, superficial and
deep parotid, and superficial cervical nodes; inferiorly, they drain into
the jugular lymphatic trunk
SUPERFICIAL CERVICAL NODES
G. Lymphatics

2. Superficial cervical nodes: lie along the external jugular vein; receive
lymphatic drainage from occipital, retroauricular, and superficial and
deep parotid nodes, and drain to deep cervical nodes
THORACIC DUCT
3. Thoracic duct: courses laterally, anterior to the left vertebral artery, and empties into the angle of junction ofthe left subclavian and left internal
