The majority of the nasal cavity is lined by a pseudostratified columnar, ciliated epithelium with goblet cells. The submucosa contains serous and seromucus glands, nerves, cellular elements, and an extensive vasculature. The structure of the nasal turbinates increases total mucosal surface area to 300 cm2, thereby enhancing the humidification, particle removal, and temperature modulation of inspired air.
