Lymphatic system

A complex network of vessels and nodes (glands) that carry fluid (lymph) from body tissues to the blood system. It has a dual role-it drains excess fluid and proteins into the blood stream to keep a constant balance of fluid within the body and the lymph nodes produce lymphocytes to help fight infection.
