Term Detail
MP term:abnormal pulmonary alveolus morphology
Synonym: abnormal alveoli
Synonym: abnormal pulmonary alveoli morphology
Synonym: abnormal respiratory alveoli morphology
Synonym: abnormal respiratory alveolus morphology
MP id: MP:0002270
Definition: any structural anomaly of the small sac-like dilations of the distal airspace of the lung; they are present along the walls of the alveolar sacs, alveolar ducts and terminal bronchioles; gas exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between alveolar air and blood in the pulmonary capillaries takes place across the cell walls
