Right lymphatic duct

Dr Daniel J Bell and Dr Henry Knipe et al.

The right lymphatic duct is a terminating vessel of the lymphatic system and forms from the confluence of the right jugular, right subclavian and right bronchomediastinal lymphatic trunks. It has a short 2 cm course, usually draining into the systemic venous system at the junction of the right internal jugular and subclavian veins.
