Hilar Lymph Nodes

Summary Information: Hilar Lymph Nodes

Hilar Lymph Nodes: Hilar lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located where the lungs meet the bronchi. Hilar lymph nodes consist of lymphatic tissues enclosed by a fibrous capsule. They contain scavenging white blood cells that fight infection and its spread. They act as filters that strain out potentially harmful pathogens and microorganisms from lymph fluid that drains the lungs. Swollen hilar lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.

Hilar lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the hilar lymph nodes include pneumonia, calcified hilar lymph nodes, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
