External iliac lymph nodes

Parietal nodes located in association with the external iliac vein; they are subdivided into three groups: intermediate external iliac lymph nodes, between the vein and the external iliac artery; lateral external iliac lymph nodes; and medial external iliac lymph nodes, medial to the vein; they all receive afferent vessels from the inguinal nodes, lower abdominal wall, and pelvic viscera, and send efferent vessels to the common iliac nodes.
