Tonsillar Lymph Nodes: Tonsillar lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located below the jaw. Tonsillar lymph nodes consist of lymphatic tissues enclosed by a fibrous capsule. They contain scavenging white blood cells that fight infection and its spread. They act as filters that strain out potentially harmful pathogens and microorganisms from lymph fluid that drains from the nearby tonsillar and pharyngeal regions. Swollen tonsillar nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
Tonsillar lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the tonsillar lymph nodes include tonsillitis, tonsil cancer, pharyngitis, cellulitis, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
