Collateral sulcus

a long, deep sagittal fissure on the undersurface of the temporal lobe, marking the border between the fusiform gyrus laterally and the hippocampal and lingual gyri medially; the great depth of the collateral sulcus results in a bulging of the floor of the occipital and temporal horn of the lateral ventricle, the collateral eminence.

Synonym: sulcus collateralis, sulcus occipitotemporalis, collateral fissure, fissura collateralis, occipitotemporal sulcus.
