Heterotopic salivary gland tissue (HSGT) is defined as normal salivary tissue located at sites other than the major and minor salivary glands.
At the head and neck level, salivary tissue is present in the major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands), minor salivary glands (upper aerodigestive tract), and accessory salivary glands (immediate anterior periparotid region), and this is present in association with branchial cleft anomalies, or more rarely, as heterotopic salivary gland tissue (HSGT).
