Abstract

In the submandibular region an anatomical anomaly of muscle arrangement was found. Between the left and right digastric muscles, asymmetric accessory digastric muscles were detected, which all arose from the mandible and were attached to the hyoid bone. Furthermore, the right anterior digastric muscle had an accessory belly. These anomalies of digastric muscles may be anatomical manifestations of a functional support of the mylohyoid muscle.
