Early studies suggest that tumor lymph node metastasis is related to tumor invasion in peripheral lymphatic vessels
. The increase of LVD is associated with lymphangiogenesis.
By definition, lymphedema refers to the abnormal distension of the lymphatic vessels
. The underlying etiology may be either related to overproduction of the lymphatic fluid or to the blockade of distal lymphatic flow.
The diameters of the D2-40 stained lymphatic vessels
were assessed by using the Image-J[R], a public domain, Java-based image processing program developed at the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD, USA).
The lesion was entirely removed, and histopathology demonstrated dilated lymphatic vessels
with thin walls lined by endothelial cells and no associated red blood cells in the papillary dermis, overlying epidermal atrophy, some degree of acanthosis and hyperkeratosis, and elongation of the rete ridges, consistent with a diagnosis of lymphangioma (Figure 2).

Erysipelas is an infectious cutaneous process caused by a bacterium that spreads through lymphatic vessels
. The port of entry may be a skin injury due to trauma, ulcers, or, more commonly, interdigital mycosis, popularly known as "athlete's foot" .
It is known that cystic nodal metastasis of RCC is caused by obstruction of the lymphatic vessels
draining the kidney by tumor cells and retrograde metastasis from the primary site to the lymph nodes along the lymphatic vessels
The constellation of histology and immunohistochemistry demonstrated that the wall of the cyst was not derived from the mesothelium but from the lymphatic vessels
. The final pathological diagnosis was a benign lymphatic endothelial-lining cyst of soft tissue.
Then, by using an infrared camera, the surgeon receives a dynamic image of the lymphatic vessels
and nodes and can also check which channels are functioning properly.
Aire stated that the lymph drainage of the interstitial tissue of birds was by means of sparse lymphatic vessels
which are generally interposed between the Interstitial cells, blood vessels and peritubular myofibroblast tissue.
Lymphatic malformations are benign hamartomas of lymphatic vessels
. They are believed to originate from sequestration and cystic dilation of fetal lymphaticovenous sacs that fail to communicate either remaining lymphatic or venous system (1).
TEHRAN (FNA)- By scanning the brains of healthy volunteers, researchers saw the first, long-sought evidence that our brains may drain some waste out through lymphatic vessels
, the body's sewer system.
