Abnormal lymphatic vessel morphology (MP:0001879) and its children are currently found only under the Immune system and this placement is appropriate. However, the lymphatic vessels also serve as a low pressure return path in the circulatory system to the heart. Perhaps these terms belong in both places?

    Lymphatic vessels are definitely part of the circulatory system. However, I will argue that they are not part of the cardiovascular system. The MP header is to cardiovascular, not circulatory.
