Peyer's patch in the Ileum Mucosa
Gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) is found througout the intestine in such places as the lamina propria of the submucosa and in between epithelial tissue cells. Also there is nodule type tissues similar to a lymph node in function called Peyer's patches. Peyer's patches are most evident in the ileum.
