ANATOMY Drainage pattern to the superficial and deep inguinal lymph nodes. - Anything from the internal genitalia (testicles, ovaries, uterus) drains to the para-aortic lymph nodes- But what drains into the superficial and deep inguinal lymph nodes?- Deep inguinal lymph nodes drain the lower limb, while superficial nodes drain the external genitalia and superficial tissues. This is why we never resect or even biopsy via a transcrotal approach despite the fact that the testicles drain into the para-aortics. HY TIPS for USMLE- 1.
