Response in distant lymph nodes of mice to infection in the hind footpad with Mycobacterium marinum.

Abstract

In an attempt to demonstrate the importance of the popliteal lymph node in limiting the progress of infection with Mycobacterium marinum in the hind footpads of C57BL mice, such infections were studied in mice subjected to popliteal or popliteal and inguinal adenectomies.
