Abstract Intestine has a well-developed lymphatic system that is closely related with its functions, such as mucosal immunological defense or absorption of nutrients. Intestinal lymphoid cells such as lymphocytes, macrophages/monocytes, or dendritic cells are continuously migrating through intestinal mucosa, thereby facilitating their immune responses. Their migrations are well controlled by well-organized molecular mechanisms including adhesion molecules, chemokines, etc. This manuscript will review how dysfunction of lymphoid cell migration is involved in intestinal inflammation, especially in the pathophysiology of intestinal bowel diseases.
