Lymph Vessels of the Vaginal Vestibule

Some of the lymph vessels of the vaginal vestibule (Figure 29: f) drain with those of the vagina to the hypogastric lymph nodes (Figure 29: 4) and to the lateral sacral lymph nodes (Figure 29: 7), though others also drain to the superficial inguinal lymph nodes (Figure 29: 5), as demonstrated in Figure 29.

Occasionally, a lymph vessel of either the vagina or the vaginal vestibule bypasses the hypogastric lymph nodes and will either flow directly into the medial iliac lymph node (Figure 29: 1), or into the lateral sacral lymph node (Figure 29: 7).
