15 Longitudinal section of a bronchus. At the bottom parts of a cartilage is seen, above bronchial glands – in this case hyperplasia in chronic bronchitis. Within the glands two cell types can be seen, the pale goblet cell and the pinkishstained serous cell. The former produces sticky mucus, the latter a soluble fluid; the mix of both forms part of the thin mucus layer on the bronchial epithelium. H&E, ×100 cular bundle, whereas veins collect blood along the interlobular septa. Blood from the right heart flows along the pulmonary arteries along the bronchovascular bundle.

There is no alveolar tissue. The cysts neither communicate with the central airways nor the periphery. H&E, ×100 Fig. 27 CPAM III; higher magnification of this lesion showing the immature bronchioles completely covered by Clara cells. H&E, ×250 cystic malformations: CPAM 0 is not cystic and CPAM IV is emphysematous, so we will discuss these lesions under the appropriate term of alveolar dysgenesis and congenital emphysema, although at present we do not have enough data about pathogenesis and the genetic background.

In experimental settings, the proliferation activity within this cell layer is upregulated [6]. Basal cells: The major function of the triangular-shaped basal cells is adherence (Fig. 8). They sit with their long axis firmly attached to the basal membrane and with their side axis provide attachment for several other cells especially for tall columnar cells such as the ciliated and goblet cells. The basal cells are only marginally able to divide and reproduce themselves. R. Johnson, Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, Albuquerque, NM).
