In the evaluation of peripheral lymph node status ultrasound is, therefore, the first choice imaging modality in patients with inflammatory or malignant diseases. Biopsy of the lymph node is the definitive diagnostic test in evaluating lymph node enlargement. Common causes are inguinal or femoral herniae, enlarged lymph nodes, swellings arising from structures within the skin such as lipomata and sebaceous cysts, and vascular pathology such as saphena varix and femoral artery aneurysms.
