Paralingual Space is a region located on the floor of the oral cavity. The cavity has great importance in communications and for the spread of infectious diseases. This study investigated the level of dissemination of 0.2 ml of an oily pigment solution, into paralingual space of 20 heads of male Sprague Dawley rats. The results can be seen by the spread of the solution in the three segments of paralingual space, being higher in the middle third of the region, although the differences were not significant (p<0.05). With these observations, the discussion is about the possibility that an infection may spread into paralingual space opposite the muscles of the medial wall of this space.
KEY WORDS: paralingual space, hiatus of Fleischmann, genioglossus muscle, hyoglossus muscle.
