  Inferior Turbinate
2000 Peter Casano, M.D.  
  The inferior turbinate is large and fills the lower portion of the nasal airway. It is a long structure, and extends from the front of the nose to the rear. The turbinate functions to humidify the air, it shrinks and swells to regulate nasal air resistance, and it collects airborne particles on its surface to clean the air.
