Summary Information: Nodes

Nodes: Nodes, also known as lymph nodes, are glands that consist of lymphatic tissues enclosed by a fibrous capsule. Nodes contain scavenging white blood cells that fight infection and prevent its spread to more areas of the body. Nodes and act as filters that strain out potentially harmful pathogens and microorganisms from lymph fluid that has drained from tissues or organs before it is returned to the venous circulation. Swollen nodes are often a sign of disease or infection. Many nodes are found in the axilla and groin areas.

Nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict nodes include lymphadenopathy, cat scratch fever, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
