TISSUES AND STRUCTURES

1. The body is composed of four basic tissues - epithelium, connective tissue, muscle and nerve.

2. Skin consists of two elements: epithelium/epidermis & appendages (ectodermal in origin) and connective tissue (mesodermal in origin).

3. The epidermis is of the stratified squamous keratinizing variety.

4. The connective tissue (dermis) is mesodermal in origin, consisting of bundles of collagen fibres with elastic tissue, blood vessels, lymphatics and nerve fibres, all embedded in ground substance.
