Abstract


Epiglottis presents a central axis covered by mucosa. The aim of this study was highlighting the type of epithelium lining the lamb epiglottis. Thus, we histologically processed the epiglottis from 3 lambs. The epithelium lining the whole epiglottis surface is non-keratinized stratified squamous, with different thickness from one side to the other. Hence, on the pharyngeal side the epithelium is twice as thick as the one found on the laryngeal side.

Keywords
