Lymphatic vessels

 

These are small minute vessels which carry lymph around the body. The largest is the thoracic duct found in the posterior and superior mediastini and ends at the root of the neck by emptying into the left great veins. They help to drain infection and foreign bodies in various parts of the body and are interconnected with lymph nodes.
