Summary Even a quick look at the surface of human skin reveals its many complexities. Much more than a simple shell for the human body, the skin helps protect internal organs and, working in conjunction with connective tissue, allows the human body to function as a unit. This comprehensive volume examines the components of the human integumentary system, as well as the various diseases and disorders to which it is vulnerable.
