|Solitary lymphatic nodule|
Transverse section of human vermiform process. X 20. (Lymph nodule labeled at bottom right.)
|Latin||Noduli lymphoidei solitarii|
Their free surfaces are covered with rudimentary villi, except at the summits, and each gland is surrounded by the openings of the intestinal glands.
The interspaces of the retiform tissue are continuous with larger lymph spaces which surround the gland, through which they communicate with the lacteal system.
They are situated partly in the submucous tissue, partly in the mucous membrane, where they form slight projections of its epithelial layer.
They are similar to those of the small intestine.
