Pig Embryo Lung Histology

Section of lung of pig embryo, 13 cm. long, showing the glandular character of the developing alveoli (J. M. Flint.) X 70.

a. Interstitial connective tissue.

b. A bronchial tube.

c. An Alveolus.

l. lymphatic clefts.

q. Pleura.


The fetal lung resembles a gland in that the alveoli have a small lumen and are lined by cubical epithelium (Fig. 976). After the first respiration the alveoli become distended, and the epithelium takes on the characters described above.
