Popliteal Lymph Nodes

Summary Information: Popliteal Lymph Nodes

Popliteal Lymph Nodes: Popliteal lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located in the knee area. Popliteal 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 that has drained from tissues in the legs and feet. Swollen popliteal lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.

Popliteal lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict popliteal lymph nodes include foot infections, lower leg infections, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
