Mesenteric glands, or mesenteric lymph nodes, are nodes located in the mesentery. They are of three classes: mesenteric lymph nodes, juxta-intestinal lymph nodes, and the superior middle group of mesenteric lymph nodes.

The Juxta intestinal lymph nodes are located close to the intestinal wall. The mesentric lymph nodes are scattered among the arterial arcades and the superior central nodes are located along the proximal part of the superior mesentric artery.
