Supreme nasal concha

Last revised by Rohit Sharma on 9 Apr 2018

The supreme nasal concha or turbinate is one of the conchae in the nose and is a bony projection, arising from the medial surface of the labyrinth of the ethmoid above the superior nasal concha. Its presence is variable and has been reported in up to 52% of subjects 1.

The air passage between the supreme nasal concha and the lateral nasal wall is known as the supreme meatus.
