    Update Comments[Top] [Nav]
  • "In addition to the areas of increased skin temperature, the lesions of [lepromatous leprosy] also appear to avoid the scalp, palms, soles, area between nasion and internal ocular canthi, and the midline of the back and intermammary zone -- all sites where the skin is tightly bound down." [101]
  • Contains a litany of age-related changes in the face too long (and depressing) to reprint here. You'll look at people differently after reading the first couple pages of this article. [102]
  • Environment aside, a woman's skin generally wrinkles earlier than a man's for two reasons: (1) women have thinner facial skin, (2) women's sebaceous glands are not as efficient sebum producers in later life as a man's are. Rinzler cites: Kligman, below. [103]
  • See reference above. [104]
  • The forehead and face become smooth and unlined in fascioscapulohumeral dystrophy (Landouzy-Déjérine). [105]
