    Human skin biology and the search for the truth

    José Mesquita-Guimarães*

    1. Human skin consists of epidermis, pilosebaceous follicles, eccrine and apocrine sweat glands, melanocytes, Langherans cells, Merkel cells, connective tissue of the dermis and hypodermis, nerves and lymphatic and blood vessels. It means that the skin is an extremely complex organ, made up of multiple cell types and structures, with remarkable morphofunctional diversity. But the skin is a single, interdependent, unifi ed whole, without “skin appendages”, which evolves from birth to senile age and death, depends on sex and the environment and all its cells and structures are under genetic determination, so no two skins are alike.
