LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE OF JEJUNUM-ILEUM (small intestine)    

Lymphatic vessels of the jejunum and ileum pass into mesenteric nodes via the lacteals of the villi. They do not reach the superior mesenteric nodes, which the blood vessels follow. All the efferents pass into the intestinal lymph trunks, which then enter the cisterna chyli or the abdominal confluence of lymph trunks. The cisterna chyli drains into the thoracic duct.
