Abstract

Nasal-associated lymphoid tissue (NALT), which comprises paired lymphoid organs in the nasopharynx of rodents, is the principal mucosal lymphoid tissue of the respiratory tract. As described in this review, NALT bears certain similarities to the Peyer's patches of the intestine but the two differ remarkably in morphology, lymphoid migration patterns and the binding properties of their high endothelial venules (HEV).
