Sweat Gland in Skin
This image shows a portion of a sweat gland deep in 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, lined by cuboidal epithelium, which comprises the gland.
Much of the tissue immediately surrounding this sweat gland is adipose (apparently empty roundish spaces) or fibrous connective tissue (pink texture), with scattered fibroblasts and other connective tissue cells (dark).
