LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE OF THE UTERUS       

Uterine lymphatic vessels are arranged in two  layers- superficial or subperitoneal and deep within the uterine wall. Vessels from the inferior aspect of uterine body pass to the external iliac nodes together with cervical vessels.  Vessels from the upper part of the uterus pass are accompanied by vessels of the ovary, fundus and uterine tubes to the lateral aortic nodes and the pre-aortic nodes. A few vessels then pass to the external iliac nodes. The uterine vessels do enlarge considerably in pregnancy.
