A midline prelaryngeal (cricotyhroid) lymph node.
- Receives lymphtic drainage from larynx & thyroid gland.
- Can be enlarged in thyroid carcinoma or advanced larygeal cancer.
- This node gets its name from Greek mythology. The Oracle of Delphi, called Pythria, was a Priestess who would answer questions posed to her, never concealing nor revealing the truth. Thus, an enlarged Delphian node may, or may not, indicate the presence of thyroid cancer.
