Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the normal structure and provide distribution for palatine

glands in cranial and caudal part of soft palate. Also, afford information to be useful for both surgical

interventions and pathological disease. Method/: Sixth healthy cats were caught in Iraq farms. All experimental

animals euthanized by intramuscular injection of ketamine (0.5 cc) and xylazine (0.5 cc), Sections were

stained by H&E and combined AB+PAS stain 2.5 pH. Results: The soft palate was triangular in shape, the

dimensions was (2.8, 2) cm in length and width respectively. Also, had two surface; nasopharyngeal surface

lined by psuedostratified columnar epithelial ciliated and oropharyngeal surface lined by stratified squamous

epithelia. The palatine glands appeared magenta in color during staining by AB+PAS combined stain due

to neutral secretion. Conclusion: The palatine glands variance in distribution between dorsal and ventral

surface of soft palate, most of these glands constricted in oropharyngeal surface.
