Sweat Gland in Skin
The portion of a sweat gland found deep in skin is surrounded by fibrous connective tissue of the dermis.
Sweat glands typically appear as clusters of several round or oval profiles, as shown here. Each profile represents a section across the twisted tubule which comprises the gland.
Point-and-click on the image above to identify sweat gland profiles and other structures (nerve, blood vessels, adipocytes).
Most of the area of this this image is occupied by collagen (pink), ground substance (pale background), and scattered fibroblasts and other connective tissue cells (dark).
