Definition (MSHCZE) Největší ze tří párových SLINNÝCH ŽLÁZ. Leží na obou stranách TVÁŘE v místě bezprostředně pod a před UCHEM. Párová žláza uložená na rameni dolní čelisti, prochází skrz ni sedmý hlavový lícní nerv. Její vývod vede přes m. masseter a ústí do dutiny ústní v blízkostí druhé horní stoličky. G. p. tvoří asi jednu třetinu množství slin, přičemž sliny v ní vzniklé jsou bohaté na amylázu a chudé na hlen. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online 2012, http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/ )
