Afferent lymphatic channels are veinlike structures that drain extracellular fluid (ie. lymph) from a site into a regional node. Lymphatics serve 2 major purposes: to convey immune cells and to carry whole antigen from the site of inoculation to a lymph node. Antigen-presenting cells APCs are specialized cells that bind and phagocytize antigen at a site. Following ingestion of antigen. APCs migrate to lymph nodes. where they process the antigen. typically by intracellular proteolysis to short amino acid chains of7 to II amino acids.

Over the next few days, as T and B lymphocytes are primed, the hilar nodes become enlarged because of th e increased number of dividing T and B lymphocytes as well as by the genera lized increased traffi cki ng of other lymphocytes through the nodes. The effector phase begins when the primed T lymphocytes recirculate and enter the infected lung. The T lymphocytes interact with t he macrophageingested bacteria, and cytokines are released that activate neighboring macrophages to fu se into giant cells, forming caseating granulomas.
