Supraclavicular Lymph Nodes: Supraclavicular lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located just above the clavicle or collarbone. Supraclavicular 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 from parts of the abdomen and thorax. Swollen supraclavicular lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
Supraclavicular lymph nodes include the Virchow's lymph node and contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the supraclavicular lymph nodes include thoracic infection, abdominal infections, sepsis, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
