The lymph nodes of the porta hepatitis

Surgery Gynecology and Obstetrics 143(2): 225-228
The lymph nodes of the porta hepatitis
The area under the liver was dissected in 27 human autopsy specimens to search for lymph nodes in the fissures. Nodes were present in all instances. They were in the transverse fissure, posterior to the portal vein, posterior to pars transversus of the left portal vein and associated with the left hepatic artery. The size varied from 2 mm to 2 cm. Each node was histologically confirmed. Nodes were infrequent and small on the right. Nodes were not found between the portal vein, hepatic artery and bile ducts in the fissures. Nodes were found outside the fissures in the fascia between the bile duct and hepatic artery. Occlusion of the portal vein and hepatic artery could be expected before occlusion of the bile duct. Node enlargement in the transverse fissure is anticipated as a rare cause of jaundice.
