Inferior nasal conchae

The light microscopic features of the mucous membrane of intact inferior nasal concha are described. A proposal is made to standardize the terminology of tissue deep to the basement membrane as superficial or deep tunica propria.

The range of epithelia found and the distribution of the various cell types and fibers present in the conchae are described.

The inferior nasal concha is one of the turbinates in the nose. It extends horizontally along the lateral wall of the nasal cavity and consists of a lamina of spongy bone, curled upon itself like a scroll.

A nasal concha is one of the curved bones that make up the upper portion of the nasal cavity. There are several different conchae in the nose, such as the inferior concha, medial concha and superior concha.


The incidence of middle turbinate pneumatization, or concha bullosa, has been well described in the literature. However, to our knowledge, no study has evaluated concha bullosa in relation to nasal septal deviation.

We sought to analyze the incidence of concha bullosa and any correlation with nasal septal deviation and paranasal sinus disease.
