Abstract: Submucosal solitary lymphoid nodules of large intestine of pigs were scattered along the length and width of the colon and rectum and were mainly confined to the distal colon and rectum. Lympho-glandular complex (LGC) consisted of a well demarcated and partially encapsulated lymphocytic aggregate with variable numbers of lymphoid nodules with germinal centers in the rectum. In the colon, the LGCs typically consisted of a pore like depression on surface epithelium from which mucosal glands extended through a circular gap in the lamina muscularis mucosae and penetrated submucosal lymphoid tissue. The lymphoglandular complex resembled "Flask-shaped glands" Goblet cells were abundantly present in some crypt areas.
