CNS Lymphatics

The CNS contains lymphatic vessels in the meninges that connect and drain the CSF into the peripheral lymphatic system. Impaired functioning of the CNS lymphatic system can be dangerous with the accumulation of toxic substances such as amyloid protein that is part of Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis. Here is the latest research on the CNS lymphatics.
