Your immune system is your body’s defense against infections and other harmful invaders. Without it, you would constantly get sick from bacteria or viruses.
The lymph, or lymphatic, system is a major part of the immune system. It's a network of lymph nodes and vessels. Lymphatic vessels are thin tubes that branch, like blood vessels, throughout the body.
When your immune system doesn't work the way it should some of the disorders get. You may:
have been born with a weak immune system. This is called primary immune deficiency.
Get a disease that weakens your immune system. This is called acquired immune deficiency.
Have an immune system that is too active. This may happen with an allergic reaction.
Have an immune system that turns against you. This is called autoimmune disease.
