I had a recent test question on lymph drainage from an ankle injury.
Is there a comprehensive image or table that states which lymph node different parts of the body drain to?

I didn't think to study any lymph nodes other than the key ones for cancer (like Virchow's) till this question popped up. Any thoughts? :) Thanks.

Is it popliteal?

I think there's a table in FA that lists the proximal draining lymph nodes..

Oh, just found it! Sorry, didn't notice this table before. It is popliteal :)

Table on page 222 of FA 2012.

Wow good to know... was that question from UW? Just curious!

We literally have to know every word and page of FA ;)
Kaplan Qbank has a question on lateral foot lymph drainage to the popliteal nodes.
