The cubital nodes or epitrochlear nodes (also called cubital lymph nodes or cubital glands) are two sets of lymphatic nodes located near the elbow of each arm, generally just above the medial epicondyle. There is a superficial cubital node and a deep cubital node for each arm, together draining both the forearm and the hand on the ulnar side of the arm. The flow of the efferent lymphatics proceeds toward the brachial and axillary lymph nodes.
