Common Iliac Lymph Nodes

Summary Information: Common Iliac Lymph Nodes

Common Iliac Lymph Nodes: Common Iliac lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located in the lower abdomen and pelvic areas. Common 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 that has drained from the internal and external iliac nodes. Lymph then flows through the common iliac lymph nodes and is moved on to the lateral aortic nodes.

Swollen common iliac lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.

Common iliac lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict common iliac lymph nodes include infections, cellulitis, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
