Chapter Summary

This section of the book 'The Hippocratic Treatise On Glands' presents two diagrams. The first one depicts the lymphatic system of the body, and the second diagram shows the major glands of the body. There are glands beside the ears and there, on both sides beside the jugulars of the neck; and there are hairs there on both sides. At the armpits there are glands and hairs. The glands in the intestines press out and distribute wetness: the intestines receive the moisture from the channels, take it to the omentum and send it down.

Keywords: body; glands; hippocratic treatise; intestines; neck
