node of Cloquet

proximal deep inguinal lymph node

[TA]
one of the deep inguinal lymph nodes located in or adjacent to the femoral canal; sometimes mistaken for a femoral hernia when enlarged.

Cloquet’s node

The lymph node that is the highest (superior most) of the deep inguinal lymph nodes or the lowest (inferior most) of the external iliac nodes, and is the representative (“sentinel”) node taken when staging cancer of the penis.

Cloquet,

Jules G., French anatomist, 1790-1883.
Cloquet canal - a minute canal running through the vitreous from the discus nervi optici to the lens. Synonym(s): hyaloid canal
Cloquet canal remnants
Cloquet hernia - a femoral hernia perforating the aponeurosis of the pectineus and insinuating itself between this aponeurosis and the muscle, therefore lying behind the femoral vessels.
Cloquet septum - the delicate fibrous membrane that closes the femoral ring at the base of the femoral canal. Synonym(s): femoral septum
node of Cloquet - one of the deep inguinal lymph nodes located in or adjacent to the femoral canal. Synonym(s): Rosenmüller gland; Rosenmüller node

Rosenmüller,

Johann C., German anatomist, 1771-1820.
organ of Rosenmüller - a collection of rudimentary tubules in the mesosalpinx between the ovary and the uterine tube. Synonym(s): epoöphoron
Rosenmüller fossa - Synonym(s): Rosenmüller recess
Rosenmüller gland - Synonym(s): node of Cloquet
Rosenmüller node - Synonym(s): node of Cloquet
Rosenmüller recess - a slitlike depression in the membranous pharyngeal wall extending posterior to the opening of the eustachian tube. Synonym(s): pharyngeal recess; Rosenmüller fossa
Rosenmüller valve - a fold of mucous membrane guarding the lower opening of the nasolacrimal duct. Synonym(s): lacrimal fold

Standard LND (sLND) boundaries were defined as distally the circumflex vein and the node of Cloquet, laterally the external iliac artery, medially the bladder and prostate and proximally the internal iliac (hypogastric) artery.
Our standard PLND involves the dissection and removal of lymphatic tissue from the level of the external iliac vein to the obturator nerve, extending proximally to the common iliac artery bifurcation and distal to the proximal femoral canal to include the node of Cloquet.
An extended LND encompasses the aortic bifurcation and common iliac vessels proximally (may also go up to the level of the inferior mesenteric artery), the genitofemoral nerve laterally, the circumflex iliac vein and lymph node of Cloquet distally, and the hypogastric vessels posteriorly (obturator fossa, presciatic nodes bilaterally and the presacral lymph nodes over the sacral promontory).
