The cystic node belongs to the hepatic lymph nodes. It is located at the neck of the gallbladder. It receives afferent vessels from the liver, gallbladder, and cystic duct. Its efferent vessels either reach the node of the anterior border of the omental foramen, or to the posterior nodes of the superior pancreaticoduodenal nodes (Földi et al., 2012).
