The cartilage of the ear and nose, the subcutaneous periosteal surface of the tibia, and the deep fascia surrounding joints. In response to continued friction, skin reacts by increasing the thickness of its superficial layers. When wounded it responds by increased growth and repair. The skin of young individuals is extremely elastic, rapidly returning to its original shape and position. However, this elasticity is increasingly lost with age so that unless it is firmly attached to the underlying tissues it stretches.

The inferior end of the radius is expanded having five distinct surfaces. The lateral surface, which extends down to the styloid process, has a shallow groove for the tendons of abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis. The medial surface forms the concave ulnar notch for articulation with the head of the ulna. The posterior surface is convex and grooved by tendons. The prominent ridge in the middle of this surface is the dorsal (Lister's) tubercle. The lateral half of this surface continues down onto the styloid process.

These layers are from within outwards known as the stratum basale, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum, stratum lucidum and finally the stratum corneum (Fig. 2a). The stratum basale consists of a single layer of cells adjacent to the dermis. It is in this layer, as well as in the stratum spinosum that new cells are produced to replace those lost from the surface. The stratum spinosum itself consists of several layers of irregularly shaped cells, which become flattened as they approach the stratum granulosum.
