A histological study on the distribution of dermal collagen and elastic fibres in different regions of the body

  The aim of the study was to assess the unequal distributions of dermal collagen and elastic content in skin sections perpendicular to each other from different regions of the body. We collected 20 skin samples from 10 regions of a cadaver. From each region, 2 samples were collected in 2 directions which were perpendicular to each other. Histological slides were prepared and stained for collagen and elastic...
