Abstract: In 30 cats, the lymphatic drainages from the peritoneal and pleural cavities were observed. The findings may be summarized as follows : 1. India ink injected into the peritoneal cavity is absorbed from the diaphragmatic peritoneum. The ink probably passes through CHUNG's "stomata" and TSUBOUCHI's "Macula cribriformis", and then is absorbed into the lymphatic vessels in the diaphragm. From here, the ink flows away to the venous angles via six routes; sternal, lumbar, peritoneal, pulmonary, mediastinal and a last route communicating directly with the thoracic duct. 2. From the pleural cavity, the ink injected is absorbed into the lymphatic vessels in the ventral and caudal portions of the costal pleura and probably in the mediastinum. The routes were distinguished into six routes; sternal, lumbar, costal, tracheal, axillar and a variant of the costal route entering into the thoracic duct without passing through any nodes. 3. The lymph nodes related primarily with the lymphatic drainage from the peritoneal cavity are Lnn. sternales, Ln. mediastinalis ventralis, Ln. diaphragmaticus, Lnn. mediastinales craniales, Lnn. tracheobronchiales caudales, Lnn. tracheobronchiales craniales sinistri, Lnn. hepatogastrici, Lnn. gastrolienales and Lnn. lumbales craniales. These from the pleural cavity are Lnn. sternales, Lnn. paratracheales, Lnn. mediastinales dorsales, Lnn. axillares caudales and Lnn. lumbales craniales. Lnn. mediastinales craniales are rather effective as nodes related secondarily with the drainage. 4. If their relative rank can be judged, the most effective route may be the sternal route and Lnn. sternales. The second are probably the lumbar route and Lnn. lumbales craniales. This tendency may be the same in both cavities. Other routes and nodes are less effective. 5. In this observation, the hole structure is described of the mediastinum permitting of communication between the right and left pleural cavities. The occurrences are more numerous in the caudal and ventral areas of the mediastinum and also in the fold of Vena cava. Such structure is similar to that of the greater omentum.
