Anatomical terminology

Cloquet's node (or gland) (also Rosenmüller's node) is one of the inguinal lymph nodes[1][2] found in the groin.

It is named for French surgeon Jules Germain Cloquet,[3][4] or German anatomist Johann Christian Rosenmüller.[5] It can be considered the uppermost of the deep inguinal lymph nodes [6] or the lowest of the external iliac lymph nodes.[7][dead link][citation needed]
