Development of the Lacrimal Apparatus in the Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and Its Potential Role as an Animal Model for Humans
Light micrographs of frontal sections through the nasal cavity of the adult rabbit. These show the exit point of the NL (asterisk) from the bony canal (a, b) and the anterior passage towards the naris (c, d), as the NL passes through the inferior (ventral) meatus. Note the changing relationship between the maxilla (M) and maxilloturbinal (MT) bones. Abbreviation: S = nasal septum. Scale bars: (a, c) = 500 μm, (b) = 250 μm, and (d) = 125 μm.
