Lymphatic system. Computer artwork of the front view of a woman, showing the lymphatic system. Also seen are associated organs including the thymus gland (upper centre) and the spleen (centre right). Beneath the skin runs a network of lymph vessels (lines) that serve lymph nodes or glands (spheres). This system has groups of nodes in the neck, armpits, groin, and abdomen. It functions to drain fluid (lymph) from body tissues and has a role in the absorption of fats from the intestine. The lymphatic system also plays a vital role in the immune response of the body.
