Superior nasal concha

Last revised by Craig Hacking on 3 May 2023

The superior nasal conchae or turbinates form one of the three pairs of conchae in the nose and represent part of the labyrinth of the ethmoid bone, arising as bony projections from its posterior surface.

The air passage between the superior nasal concha and the lateral nasal wall is known as the superior meatus and forms part of the nasal cavity.
