This illustration shows a cross section of a terminal bronchiole with phagocytized material (black) in macrophages within the lumen of the bronchiole (airway). The pleating of the epithelial lining denotes a constricted bronchiole. Note the low columnar epithelial lining of the wall of the bronchiole and the smooth muscle bundle adjacent to the lining epithelium. (See also Plate 226.)
