    Introduction The Central Nervous System (CNS) has been considered devoid of lymphatic vasculature, and for years, the theory of the nonexistence of the lymphatic system in the brain has been accepted as a biological/anatomical fact. This very basic fact of neuro-anatomy has recently been upset by two independent studies, revealing that the brain does, in fact, have a functional lymphatic system. Although this study was originally done on mice brains, there have been similar findings in human cadaver brains.

  • Intrathoracic Lymphatics: A Case Study

    complex networks of lymphatics which have a fundamental immunological function protecting intrathoracic organs such as the lungs, pleura, oesophagus and mediastinum. These networks drain interstitial fluid from the lungs, chyle from the gastrointestinal tract, and white blood cells and other immune components (Brotons et al., 2012). Thoracic lymphatics are involved in several diseases that most thoracic surgeons are concerned about. The most important pathologies affecting thoracic lymphatics…
