Malignantgrowths—commonly sarcomatous—may begin in the nasal chambers and may extendin any of the directions above mentioned. THE ACCESSORY AIR-SPACES. The nasal fossae communicate with a number of remarkable cavities, hollowedout within the surrounding bones, which are filled with air and lined by mucousmembrane directly continuous with that of the meatuses. These pneumatic spacesinclude the max/Z/arj, the frontal, the sphenoidal and the palatal sinuses and the Fig. 11S3.

Since themucous membrane is thin and intimately adherent to the bones, the form of the cavi-ties as observed in the recent condition corresponds closely to that seen in themacerated skull. The size and extent of the spaces vary not only at different periods 142: HIMAX ANATOMY. of life, but also often on the two sides of the same- individual ; their roinniunicationswith the nasal foss;e. however, are fairly constant.
