Hassall's Corpuscles → reticular epithelial cells in medulla organized in concentric circles.
Diffuse Lymphatic Tissue → Vessels that bring lymph draining from connective tissue into a lymph node en route to the blood.
Lymph Nodes → The two types of white blood cells that are part of the body's immune system
