Basic Histology -- Lymphatic Channel in Inflammation Next Home Back

Inflammation is the stereotyped tissue response to injury.

In inflammation, the vessels let protein leak out. If the tissue damage is severe enough, some of the local structural proteins may be solubilized as well.

Normally the fluid in the lymphatic vessels is scanty and contains very little protein. This changes when a lymphatic vessel drains an area where soluble proteins have accumulated in an area because of inflammation.

This is a lymphatic vessel draining an inflamed area.
