MALT

Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue. An umbrella term for extranodal aggregates of lymphoid tissue in the bronchus (BALT), gut (GALT) and skin (SALT), as well as breast and uterine cervix. MALT is the arm of the immune defence in closest contact with exogenous antigens, thus differing from the compartmentalised peripheral somatic lymphoid tissues, which include the lymph nodes, thymus and spleen. Dimeric IgA or “secretory” IgA appears to be under MALT’s control, and MALT may be the sites of origin of extranodal lymphomas.
