glossary:bronchopulmonary_lymph_nodes

Lymph nodes in the hilum of the lung that receive lymph from the pulmonary nodes, and drain to the tracheobronchial nodes.

Synonym: glandulae bronchiales, bronchial glands, hilar lymph nodes, nodi lymphatici bronchopulmonales.

The bronchopulmonary lymph nodes is a group that encompasses both the pulmonary and bronchial groups of lung nodes. Some authors equate the term with just the bronchial nodes.

The bronchopulmonary nodes pass efferent fibres to the tracheobronchial nodes.
