1

Specialised cells in the nasal cavity involved in smell and taste

Olfactory epithelial cell

2

Squamous epithelial cells found in the alveolar sac.

Type I pneumocyte

3

The cells of the pulmonary capillaries which contribute to the blood-air barrier.

endothelial cell

4

A small area of infection at the periphery of the mid-zone of the lung, seen in tuberculosis

Ghon Focus

5

Often opportunistic, these organisms tend to affect immunocompromised patients and are usually caused by inhaled spores or reactivation of latent disease

Fungal Infection

6

A lung mass that may mimic a tumour, created in an attempt to wall off a pathogen or foreign body. Involves macrophages and may have a necrotic core

Granuloma

7

Provides motor innervation to the intercostal muscles and anterolateral abdominal wall muscles

Intercostal nerves

8

Provides motor innervation to the soft palate and intrinsic laryngeal muscles

Vagus Nerve CN X

9

Stimulation triggers a reflex cough response

Glossopharyngeal nerve CN XI and vagus nerve CN X

10

The stage of lung maturation that takes place between 6-16 weeks' gestation. It involves the development of multiple branches of the bronchial tree down to the level of the terminal bronchioles.

Pseudoglandular

11

The stage of lung maturation that takes place between 26 days' and 6 weeks' gestation. It involves the first stages of lung development, and sees the formation of the lungs' lobes and segments

Embryonic

12

The germ layer that forms the cartilage and smooth muscle in the thorax.

Visceral Mesoderm

13

The structure that is seen to develop by 28 days' gestation, found inferior to the trachea.

Bronchial Buds

14

The stage of lung maturation that takes place between 36 weeks' gestation and early childhood and involves further maturation of the alveoli.

Alveolar

15

Widespread infection throughout the lung, seen where the organism has spread via the bloodstream

Miliary TB

16

A focus of infection with a fibrous wall, making antibiotic treatment difficult

Lung Abscess

17

A lung mass that is a primary pulmonary condition that can cause systemic effects and B symptoms, and can metastasise

Bronchial Carcinoma

18

Provides motor innervation to the diaphragm

Phrenic Nerves

19

Innervate the abdominal wall with somatic sensory, somatic motor and sympathetic nerve supply

Thoracoabdominal nerves

20

A phagocytic cell that migrates up the bronchial tree and is eventually swallowed. Also known as a dust cell.

Alveolar macrophage

21

The majority cell type lining the terminal bronchioles.

Cuboidal epithelial cell

22

An immunologically active cell recruited to the lungs in the later stages of inflammation

Lymphocyte

23

An infection affecting the distal airspaces, usually accompanies by an inflammatory exudate causing consolidation

Pneumonia

24

Fixed dilatation of the bronchi, usually as a result of scarring or distal to a chronic obstruction. Causes the accumulation of purulent secretions

Bronchiectasis

25

A collection of pus in the pleural space, which can be seen on a chest X-ray as a D-shaped abnormality

Empyema

26

The initial stage in tumour development where cells gross appearance and histological findings are altered but there is no malignancy

sqaumous metaplasia

27

A tumour which produces keratin pearls, and may produce thyroid transcription factor.

Squamous carcinoma

28

A lung cancer which is only treated by chemotherapy but may become rapidly resistant to treatment.

Small cell lung cancer

29

A mucus-producing cell found within respiratory epithelium.

Goblet cell

30

A non-ciliated cell found in terminal bronchioles. Acts as an immune modulator and stem cell and is able to produce surfactant

Clara cell
