External Iliac Lymph Nodes: External iliac lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located in the pelvic area around the external iliac artery and the external iliac vein. External iliac lymph nodes consist of lymphatic tissues enclosed by a fibrous capsule. They contain scavenging white blood cells that fight infection and act as filters that strain out potentially harmful pathogens and microorganisms from lymph fluid.
Swollen external iliac lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
External iliac lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the external iliac lymph nodes include infections, cellulitis, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
