The lymphatic system has multiple interrelated functions: It is responsible for the removal of interstitial fluid from tissues. It absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats as chyle from the digestive system. It transports white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bones.

The lymphatic system consists of the following (): Fluid, known as lymph. Vessels that transport lymph. Organs that contain lymphoid tissue (eg, lymph nodes, spleen, and thymus).

The tonsils are small masses of secondary lymphoid tissue located in the pharynx. They function similarly to other types of secondary lymphoid organs and also capture antigens from respiratory tract pathogens.

The tonsils are one of the immune system's first lines of defence against ingested or inhaled foreign pathogens.
