ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry for "jugular vein" is presented. It refers to one of three veins on each side of the neck which return deoxygenated blood from the head to the heart. The internal vein is the largest and arises at the base of the skull and travels down the neck alongside the carotid arteries before passing the clavicle. The anatomy of the jugular veins is presented.
