The epithelium rests on a basal lamina, under which there is a thin layer of fibrous connective tissue. At various places on the surface of tonsil, deep indentations, 10–20 in number, are present. These indentations, or tonsillar crypts, penetrate into the inferior of the tonsil and are lined by a continuation of the surface epithelium. Lymphoid tissue is present around the crypts as a diffuse mass in which lymph nodules are embedded. The nodules, like those of lymph nodes, may contain germinal centers.
