Reticular Connective Tissue. Continuation of Plate 53
The capsule (1) of the lymph node has been drawn thinner and with only a few collagen bundles so that the course of an afferent lymphatic capillary (2) and the point where it opens into the subcapsular sinus (3) can be seen more clearly. The capillary endothelial cells (4) are continuous with the very flattened reticular cells, littoral cells (5), which line all sinuses of the lymph node.
