Caption: Throat lymphoid tissue. Close-up of a patch of lymphoid tissue on the throat (pharynx) of a healthy 10-year-old boy. Part of the immune system, lymphoid tissue contains lymphocyte cells that fight infection in the body. There is a network of lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels around the body, making up the lymphatic system. The pharynx is an unusual location for lymphoid tissue.
