An anterior group of medial nasal glands lies at the ventral wall of the principal chamber, a posterior group attaches to the caudal margin of the vomeronasal organ (Fig.
2), the capillary bed of olfactory and accessory olfactory nerve fiber bundles, and the posterior group of medial nasal glands (Fig.
Its caudal circumference contacts the anterior margin of the posterior group of medial nasal glands (Fig.
The location of the VNO between part of the alary cartilage (rostrally) and the caudal portion of the strongly vascularized caudal portion of medial nasal glands (caudally) in combination with the given vascular anatomy of the VNO establish a structural prerequisite of such a vascular pumping mechanism.
Note wide vessels (asterisks) between and around nasal glands, olfactory and accessory olfactory nerve fiber bundles.

The causative agent of nasal adenocarcinoma is retrovirus and induces unilateral or bilateral neoplastic growth in mucosal nasal glands
of ethmoidal area (De las Heras et al., 1993, 2003).
* the greater superficial petrosal nerve, which supplies taste fibers to the palatal mucosa, preganglionic parasympathetic axons to the pterygopalatine ganglion, and postganglionic axons to the lacrimal glands, nasal glands
, and palatine mucosal glands; it also communicates with the lesser petrosal nerve (2)
