. Structure of the skin Epidermis Dermis  Connective tissue containing  Keratinized stratified (bl. hair devoid of blood vessels follicles. smooth m. v. sensory nerve squamous epithelium endings. lymph v. sweat and sebaceous glands)  In its deep part the collagen bundles are arranged in parallel rows Dr. Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy .

Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy . Skin • Layers of skin • Epidermis • Five type of layers • Dermis • Two type of layers Junction • Dermal papilla • Epidermal peg (rete pegs) Dr.

Stratum corneum-non Dr. spine like process. Navneet Kumar nucleated keratinized dead cells Professor (Anatomy) . Skin…. Stratum basale • Single layer of columnar cells 2. tonofilament 3. fusiform cells 5. Stratum lucidum • Homogeneous keratin. • Epidermis - 1.Stratum granulosum • Keratohyline granules 4. Stratum spinosum • Several layers of polyhedral cells.

UV protection • 2-Vitamin D synthesis • epidermal keratinocytes when exposed to UV light • helps maintain health of skeleton by increasing absorption of Ca2+ • 3-Sensation • receptors for heat. vibration and pain Dr. touch. Functions of the Skin • 1-Protection • abrasion.

Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy . Fascia Collection of connective tissue Superficial fascia Deep fascia Dr.

• It unites the skin to the underlying structures. • It is dense in some places as scalp. Superficial fascia Superficial fascia: • Loose. auricle. palm of hand and sole of foot and contains collagen bundles • It is thin in the eyelids. • Passage for cutaneous vessels. scrotum. penis and clitoris (devoid of adipose tissue). mixture of adipose and loose areolar tissues. Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy) . Functions: • Facilitates movement of skin over underlying structures. Dr. nerves… Protects the body against heat loss.

Superficial fascia .

Superficial Fascia • Site with Very less fat -Eyelids -Pinna -Penis • Site with more fat .Abdomen -Gluteal region Dr.Breast . Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy) .

Deep fascia It is more dense than superficial fascia Collagenous bundles are more compact and more regularly arranged It is usually present in the form of membranes Dr. Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy) .

Investing fascia • Covers the surfaces of muscles • In the neck: it forms well-defined layers. bounds fascial spaces so limits spread of infection or determine the path of infection • In the abdomen: it is thin • In the limbs: forms a definite sheath around the muscles • Dr. Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy) • . Examples of deep fascia A.

Examples of deep fascia……….. Navneet Kumar Professor (Anatomy . B. Inter muscular septa lie between muscles dividing the limb into compartments Dr.
