They are pathways for proper lymphatic drainage. They are organized into a complex and widespread anastomotic network punctuated by lymph node structures. For this reason, they are classified into afferent (or prelymph node) and efferent (or postlymph node) collectors. Further, depending on their anatomic position, they are classified into superficial (or suprafascial) and deep (or subfascial), and visceral collectors.
