The immune system is our body’s defense system against infectious pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and fungi as well as parasitic animals and protists. The immune system works to keep these harmful agents out of the body and attacks those that manage to enter. One system that shares several organs and physiological functions with the immune system is the lymphatic system. So, to know better about the lymphatic system, you’d better take a look at these lymphatic system diagram as posted in the following images!
As have been explained above, as the part of the body’s immune system, the lymphatic system helps to protect us from infection and disease. Lymph fluid passes through lymph nodes which are connected by a network of lymph vessels. The nodes are found throughout the whole body. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body.
The lymphatic system primarily consists of lymphatic vessels, which are similar to the circulatory system’s veins and capillaries. The vessels are connected to lymph nodes, where the lymph is filtered. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system. More lymphatic system diagrams are posted as follows.
Like you can see above, we also provide you with the worksheet or the unlabeled version of the diagram for any educational use. Just feel free to save and print these diagram and see you soon!
