The purpose of this study was to examine the tracheal structure of the crocodile Caiman latirostris using light microscopy, histochemical and immunocytochemical techniques. The tracheal epithelium of C. latirostris consists of a ciliated pseudostratified columnar epithelium with goblet cells. The respiratory epithelium also includes endocrine cells immunoreactive to serotonin. The histochemical techniques demonstrated the presence of neutral and sulphated mucins secreted by goblet cells.
