Afferent lymph vessels enter the lymph node through its hilum
Heamo-thymic barrier is in the cortex of the organ
The capillaries of the bone marrow are discontinuous
The cortex of the lymph nodes is made of lymph follicles
Malpighian bodies of the spleen are made of lymphatic nodules
Malpighian bodies of the spleen and periarterial lymphatic sheaths (PALS) comprise the splenic red pulp
The stroma of the tonsil is reticular connective tissue.
Proliferation of B lymphocytes takes place in the cortex of the lymph node.
The stroma of the tonsil is a loose connective tissue
The lymphatic tissue of the tonsil is organized into lymphatic nodules.
