It is not surprising that many infectious diseases produce symptoms associated with the lymphatic system, because the lymphatic system is involved with the production of lymphocytes that fight infectious disease, and the lymphatic system filters blood and lymph to remove microorganisms.
Lymphadenitis (lim-fad-e-ni'tis) an inflammation of the lymph nodes, which causes them to become enlarge and tender. It is an indication that microorganisms are being trapped and destroyed within the lymph nodes. Sometimes the lymphatic vessels become inflamed to produce lymphangitis (lim-fan-ji'tis). This often results in visible red streaks in the skin that extend away from the site of infection. If the microorganisms pass through the lymphatic vessels and nodes to reach the blood, septicemia, or blood poisoning, can result.
Bubonic plague and elephantiasis are diseases of the lymphatic system. In the sixth, fourteenth, and nineteenth centuries the bubonic plague killed large numbers of people. Fortunately there are relatively few cases today. Bubonic plague is caused by bacteria that are transferred to humans from rats by the bite of the rat flea. The bacteria localize in the lymph nodes, causing the lymph nodes to enlarge. The term bubonic is derived from a Greek word referring to the groin because the disease often causes the inguinal lymph nodes of the groin to swell. Without treatment, the bacteria enters the blood, multiply, and infect tissues throughout the body, rapidly causing death in 70% to 90% of those infected.
Elephantiasis (el-e-fan-ti'a-sis) is caused by long, slender roundworms. The adult worms lodge in the lymphatic vessels and cause blockage of lymph flow. The accumulation of fluid in the interstitial spaces and lymphatic vessels that results can cause permanent swelling and enlargement of a limb. The affected limb supposedly resembles an elephant's leg, providing the basis for the name of the disease.
Sure get your dog looking for imaginary rats, lol
Poor rat finds the other side of life with a flush. Looks like a great movie.
I think the rats (and everyone in the studio) were more scared of her than she was of them. Man, listen to her scream!
In this video you can see the tiny little Rat fighting against a.... cookie! So, yes it's true... a cookie... but it's a quite nice video and the song "KungFu Fighting" fits very well.
What do you get when you combine The Superfriends and Mallrats? The Justice Rats, what else? Maybe SuperRats?

My pet rats love their sun-tan after a shower. My dog loves watching them. It's fun to have them as a part of family.
Teaching a rat to jump through a ring is an easy task, the problem is the rat's consistency and his willingness to jump...
