Abstract

The intraorganic lymphatic bed of the canine tongue mucous membrane is presented by the superficial and deep capillary networks and by the plexuses of the intraorganic lymphatic vessels. The capillaries of the superficial network in the thickness of the mucous membrane of the dorsal surface of the lingual tip, body and root form the lymphatic bed of the mechanical and gustatory papillas. The diameter of the capillaries in the both networks and in the intraorganic lymphatic vessels is greater in the mucous membrane of the ventral surface of the tip and of the lateral surfaces of the lingual body, and density of their arrangement is higher in the mucous membrane on the dorsal surface of the lingual tip, body and root. The capillaries of the superficial network in all areas of the lingual mucous membrane are thinner than those of the deep network, and the loops formed by the capillaries of the superficial network are less than the loops of the deep network.
