Human palatine tonsils are clinically important due to their susceptibility to tonsillitis and association with other local and systemic diseases. Paradoxically, the tonsils function as antigen sampling sites of the mucosal immune system and, consequently, the tonsil epithelia perform both protective and antigen sampling roles. These epithelia are divided into stratified squamous epithelium overlying the tonsil surface and crypt epithelium lining the tonsil crypts, the latter of which includes… CONTINUE READING
