ABSTRACT. Starting from the contradictory information in the literature, we considered it appropriate to check through the histological examination submandibular gland in rats and its relationship with neighbouring structures. Our study highlights that the three portions described by some authors (Parhon et al., 1957) as part of the submandibular gland of rats, belonging to three different glands in neighbourly relations, but totally separated from them by a conjunctive capsule. The lay out of major salivary glands in intimate neighbourly relations, is a morphological feature in rats.
