Mucosal Associated Lymphoid Tissue

Mucosal associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) covers lymphoid tissues associated with the mucosal surfaces of alimentary, respiratory, urinary and reproductive tracts. Due to the extent of these surfaces the mucosal lymphoid tissue contains as many lymphocytes as the rest of body. The MALT is strategically located to intercept pathogens before they enter the body.
