This section describes the lymph nodes of the pelvic limb, excluding the pelvis but including the ventral pelvic wall and portions of the ventral abdominal wall
The lymph nodes of the pelvic limbs include the popliteal lymph node (Ln. popliteus), the inconstant medial femoral lymph node (Ln. femoralis medialis), and the superficial inguinal lymph nodes (Lnn. inguinales superficiales). The deep inguinal lymph node (Ln. inguinalis profundus) is located within the abdominal cavity and is therefore included with the lymph nodes of the abdominal cavity wall (see lymph nodes of the abdominal wall).
