The study of the human apocrine sweat gland poses a unique problem in this lespect because of anatomical considerations. Commonly the duct of the apocrine sweat gland empties into the distal portion of the hair follicle, and it would seem that any secretion other than sebum which appeared at the hair follicle could be regarded as apocrine sweat.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Hurley, Harry J., Human apocrine sweat gland in health and disease. Springfield, Ill., Thomas [©]. Illustration of the apocrine sweat glands.

Apocrine glands form in utero, but don't go into action until puberty when they receive cues from all the hormonal stimulation taking place. Although the apocrine glands continually release sweat, they kick into high gear every time emotional stress occurs.

In fact, the more you experience emotional. Sweat glands. Your skin has two types of sweat glands: eccrine and apocrine. Eccrine glands occur over most of your body and open directly onto the surface of your skin.

Apocrine glands open into the hair follicle, leading to the surface of the skin. Apocrine glands develop in areas abundant in hair follicles, such as on your scalp, armpits and.

The anatomy of the apocrine sweat gland, the physiology and pharmacology of apocrine sweat secretion, and the nature of such sweat are extensively considered. Among disorders of the apocrine sweat gland, osmidrosis, Fox-Fordyce disease, and hidradenitis suppurativa are very succinctly presented.

An apocrine sweat gland (/ ˈ æ p ə k r ə n,-ˌ k r aɪ n,-ˌ k r iː n /; from Greek apo– "away" and krinein "to separate") is composed of a coiled secretory portion located at the junction of the dermis and subcutaneous fat, from which a straight portion inserts and secretes into the infundibular portion of the hair follicle.

In humans, apocrine sweat glands are found only in Nerve: Adrenergic nerves. Apocrine carcinoma is a cancer of a sweat gland. Apocrine carcionoma most often develops under the arm (the axilla), but it can develop on the scalp or other parts of the body.

The cause of apocrine carcinoma is unknown. Apocrine carcinoma usually appears as a single, small, painless bump that can vary in color and slowly increases in size. The average age at the time.

Unlike eccrine sweat, which is mostly water, apocrine sweat primarily contains sialomucin. This oily substance is comprised, in large part, of sialic acid -- the working components of milk and colostrum [source: NZP].Understanding this relationship, even if we are talking about its miniscule molecules, makes it easier to see why apocrine sweat has a fat content more like milk than water.

Sweat gland (eccrine, apocrine, apoeccrine) carcinomas are exceedingly rare, arise most frequently in the skin of the head and neck or the extremities, and manifest as painless papules or nodules that grow slowly.

This type of neoplasm is usually. Ann M. Hargis, Sherry Myers, in Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease (Sixth Edition), Sweat Glands. There are two basic types of sweat glands: apocrine glands and eccrine glands.

Apocrine glands are located throughout haired areas of skin in domestic animals and are tubular- or saccular-coiled glands (see Fig. ).The ducts of the apocrine glands open in the. sweat-producing structures that are embedded in the dermis; each gland consists of a single tube, a coiled body, and a superficial duct.

Concepts Body Part, Organ, or Organ Component (T). Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic disease of a type of sweat gland. It can occur in one or multiple areas of your body. HS usually develops in your armpits, groin, and anal area.

It causes long-term skin inflammation and can be painful. Symptoms include. Blackheads and red, tender bumps, called abscesses. The abscesses get bigger.

Sweat gland, either of two types of secretory skin glands occurring only in mammals. The eccrine sweat gland, which is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system, regulates body temperature. Apocrine sweat glands, which are associated with hair follicles, continuously secrete a fatty sweat into the gland tubule.

A type of gland that is found in the skin, breast, eyelid, and ear. Apocrine glands in the breast secrete fat droplets into breast milk and those in the ear help form earwax. Apocrine glands in the skin and eyelid are sweat glands.

Most apocrine glands in the skin are in the armpits, the groin, and the area around the nipples of the breast. The apocrine sweat glands, associated with the presence of hair in human beings (as on the scalp, the armpit, and the genital region), continuously secrete a concentrated fatty sweat into the gland tube.

Emotional stress stimulates contraction of the gland, expelling its contents. Skin bacteria break Load Next Article. BACKGROUND: Human apocrine (epitrichial) sweat glands secrete in response to local or systemic administration of catecholamines and cholinergic agonists.

As the process of secretion in human apocrine glands is not fully understood and no literature detailing the expression of adrenergic, cholinergic and purinergic receptors is available, there Cited by: Apocrine sweat gland definition ata free online dictionary with pronunciation, synonyms and translation.

Look it up now. The other type of sweat gland is called an “apocrine” gland. Apocrine glands are found in the armpits and genital region. They produce a thick fluid. When this fluid comes in contact with bacteria on the skin’s surface, it produces a characteristic potent "body odor".

Both the eccrine and apocrine sweat glands are activated by nerves. INTRODUCTION. The only two mammals capable of sustained running are horses and human beings. Copious sweat is produced in horses by apocrine glands 1 and in humans by eccrine glands role of the eccrine sweat glands in human thermoregulation is evident, but what functions do apocrine and sebaceous glands fulfil.

The secretory cells show decapitation secretion. According to an electron-microscopic study of Schaumburg-Lever and Lever, there are three types of secretion in the apocrine glands—merocrine, apocrine, and holocrine [9].

Acid-fast bodies, which are seen in the eccrine glands, are also found in the apocrine glands [8]. diseases of the apocrine glands Apocrine glands are not active in childhood and smaller in size. Their activity is related to sex hormones and has no heat regulatory role as that of. Hurley HJ, Shelley WB () The human apocrine sweat gland in health and disease.

Thomas, Springfield, Ill Google Scholar Jenkinson DM () On the classification of sweat glands and the question of the existence of an apocrine secretory by: 3. Sweat glands, or sudoriferous28 (soo-dor-IF-er-us) glands, are of two kinds, described in chapter 5: merocrine and apocrine.

Merocrine (eccrine) sweat glands, the most numerous glands of the skin, produce watery perspiration that serves primarily to cool the body (fig.

a). There are 3 to 4 million merocrine sweat glands in the adult skin. Anatomy and physiology of sweat glands 1. ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF SWEAT GLANDS 2.
