Understanding the physiology and immunology of the lymphoid system is handicapped without knowledge of its basic structure. Lymphomyeloid tissues develop from epithelial (bursa of Fabricius and thymus) or mesenchymal (spleen, lymph nodes and bone marrow) anlages which are colonized by blood-borne haematopoietic cells. In the case of central lymphoid organs, haematopoietic stem cells enter the bursal or thymic anlages and develop to become immunologically competent B and T cells. Immunologically mature cells enter the circulation and colonize the peripheral lymphoid organs. In comparative immunology, results of all conducted researches on unit taxonomic groups within subphylum Vertebrata, suggest a considerable evolution and continuous development of crucial lymphoid structures. Interpreted in accordance with the biogenic law which claims that ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny, features of primitive species represent clues to immunology and physiology in mammals, especially humans.
