This three-dimensional, 75x enlarged skin block anatomical model presents two faces - front and back - providing insight and perspective into normal and pathological histology. The front face compares and contrasts normal healthy skin from three different body regions: 1) the palm or sole (totally hairless), 2) the axilla or armpit (sparse hair), and 3) the scalp (completely hirsute). All strata of the epidermis, the dermis, hypodermis, glands characteristic of each region - eccrine sweat glands, sebacious glands with oil hair shafts, apocrine glands, blood vessels, hair follicles with hairs, arrector pili muscles, nerves and receptors, are all sculpted in full relief, in contrasting colors. The back face illustrates the progressive severity of injury caused by burns - from the painful reddening and transitory damage of the first degree burn, to the blistering, often permanent damage of the second degree burn, to the deep charring and permanent tissue destruction of the third degree burn. Burn segments are fully labeled on the model.
