Internal Iliac Lymph Nodes: Internal iliac lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located in the pelvic area around the internal iliac artery. Internal 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 drains from some of the pelvic organs, and tissues in the buttocks and posterior thigh.
Swollen internal iliac lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
Internal iliac lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the internal iliac lymph nodes include infections, cellulitis, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
