Lateral Aortic Lymph Nodes: The lateral aortic lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located in the upper abdominal and thoracic areas. The lateral aortic 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 the from the common iliac nodes. Swollen lateral aortic lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
The lateral aortic lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the lateral aortic lymph nodes include infections, cellulitis, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
