The nasal turbinates are structures located on the external wall of the nostrils. They intervene directly in the functions of the nose, namely: filtration, heating, humidification, secretion, conduction and inspired air sensor (sensation of the passage of air). Its increase in size "hypertrophy of the turbinates" produces a nasal obstruction that, depending on the case, requires surgery "turbinoplasty or surgery of the turbinates"
