Lymphatic Tissue is a specialized form of reticular connective tissue in the lymphatic system that contains large numbers of lymphocytes. This tissue type makes up the spleen, the thymus, and the tonsils, as well as visceral nodes, peyer's patches and lacteals which are all associated with mucous membranes of the gastro-intestinal tract.
