Detailed Lymph Node

  • cortex -
  • paracortex - a T-cell zone
  • medulla -

Lymph pathway

  1. Afferent vessel
  2. Subcapsular sinus
  3. Paratrabecular sinus
  4. Medullary sinus
  5. Efferent vessel


Lymphocyte pathway

  • high endothelial venule - (HEV) the specialised post-capillary venous region that enables blood lymphocytes to enter a lymph node. The endothelial cells in these venules express ligands that bind lymphocytes, aiding their adhesion and subsequent transmigration into the lymph node.
