Lymph Node Histology - High Endothelial Venules

(Stain - Haematoxylin Eosin)

High Endothelial Venules (HEV) specialized postcapillary venules.

"High" from the thickness (low cuboidal) of the endothelial cells.

Endothelial cells are typically a squamous epithelium.

Vascular site for lymphocyte entry and exit from secondary lymphoid organs.

Endothelial cells express ligands that bind lymphocytes, aiding their adhesion and subsequent transmigration (lymphocyte extravasation) into the lymph node.
