Caption: Illustration of the human nasal passage with an enlarged section showing its histology. The nasal cavity forms part of the system of airways that conducts air to and from the lungs. The walls of the conducting airways are supported by cartilage and bone which prevents their collapse during ventilation. The inner lining consists of pseudostratified, columnar, ciliated epithelium (with oval, purple nuclei) interspersed with mucous- & hormone-secreting goblet cells (blue). The underlying lamina propria is rich in blood vessels & houses serous & mucous glands; some appear circular in transverse section, with one large central gland shown in longitudinal section.
