Lymphatic Pathway

The lymphatic system, also known as the secondary circulatory system, connects the bladder to the kidney and may represent a way for bacteria to be transported and subsequently cause infection. Although this pathway is classically included as a route of infection, there is a lack of data showing the lymphatic pathway as a significant mechanism for development of infection. As a result this pathway is not believed to be a significant host mechanism.
