Afferent lymph vessel
|Lymph: Afferent lymph vessel|
Structure of the lymph node.
|Latin||vasa afferentia lymphoglandulae|
The afferent lymph vessels enter at all parts of the periphery of the lymph node, and after branching and forming a dense plexus in the substance of the capsule, open into the lymph sinuses of the cortical part. In doing this they lose all their coats except their endothelial lining, which is continuous with a layer of similar cells lining the lymph paths.
