Bronchopulmonary Nodes

Last Updated: Jun 11, 2015

The bronchopulmonary nodes (also called the bronchial glands or the hilar lymph nodes) are lymph nodes located in the hilum of the lung (a triangular depression within the lung where the different structures which make up the root of the lung come together and enter and exit from the body of the lung). The bronchopulmonary nodes receive lymph from the pulmonary nodes, which they then drain into themycontentbreak tracheobronchial lymph nodes. The size of the bronchopulmonary lymph nodes varies greatly among individuals, and they can be found throughout the hilum of the lung.
