Portacaval node is a lymph node that is in the portacaval space. This is a narow space shielded anteriorly by the pancreas, stomach, gallbladder & liver & posteriorly by the inferior vena cana. (Porta hepatis is an area on the undersurface of liver)

Normal node at this site is usually 1cm or less in size. Enlargement of this lymph node may be due to infection, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, colon cancer, gastric & esophageal cancer & lypmhoma.
