Wound Management

Skin is the largest organ in the body and performs a wide variety of different functions. It is composed of a predominantly cellular epidermis and an underlying dermis, which is composed of fibers of connective tissue relatively sparsely populated with cells. They play an important role in the injury of the skin.[1]
The epidermis contains mostly keratinocytes, among which are interspersed melanocytes, Merkel cells, Langerhans cells, and other resident immune cells.
