We study the structure of a foliation of high codimension which admits a transverse foliation. We introduce four families of open saturated sets. These open sets have a simple characterization and allow us to establish a structure theorem as in codimension 1.

Keywords: Foliation, leaves, regular open set, class, local minimal set
