As they do so they become cornified (keratinized). They are ultimately shed as the skin rubs against the clothing and other surfaces. The epidermis is a vascular but is penetrated by sensory nerve endings. Its deep surface is firmly locked to the underlying dermis by projections into it known as epidermal pegs, with the reciprocal projections from the dermis being known as dermal papillae (Fig. 2a). It is usually convenient to consider the epidermis as being divided into a number of layers, particularly in the so-called thick skin of the palm or sole of the foot.

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. The stratum basale and stratum spinosum together are often referred to as the germinal zone, because of their role in new cell production. Collectively, the remaining layers of the epidermis (granulosum, lucidum and corneum) are often referred to as the horny layer.
