Artwork of section through skin with psoriasis

Psoriasis. Illustration of a section through the epidermis of human skin affected by the disease psoriasis. Psoriasis is caused by a ten-fold increase in the rate at which new skin cells are produced. These cells come from a rapidly dividing layer at the base of the epidermis, shown here in pink and deeply folded. Constant division pushes older cells to the surface, where they flatten, die, and form a thick layer of painful, flaky skin (top). Under the epidermis is the dermis, which contains blood vessels (red and blue) that nourish the skin. Psoriasis is an incurable disease that causes great physical discomfort

Epidermis Psoriasis Skin Skin Disease Condition Disorder Health Care


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an intricate artwork depicting a section through the epidermis of human skin affected by psoriasis. Psoriasis, a chronic and incurable disease, is characterized by a remarkable ten-fold increase in the production rate of new skin cells. The illustration vividly portrays this phenomenon with its depiction of deeply folded and pink-colored rapidly dividing cell layer at the base of the epidermis. As these newly formed cells continuously multiply, they push older cells towards the surface where they eventually flatten, die, and form a distressing thick layer of flaky and painful skin. This top layer is prominently visible in the artwork, serving as a poignant reminder of the physical discomfort endured by individuals suffering from psoriasis. Beneath the epidermis lies the dermis, which houses vital blood vessels depicted in striking red and blue hues. These blood vessels play a crucial role in nourishing and supporting healthy skin function. The profound impact that psoriasis has on those afflicted becomes evident through this visually stunning representation. It serves as both an educational tool for understanding this complex condition and as an artistic testament to capturing medical phenomena with precision. This thought-provoking artwork from Science Photo Library invites viewers to contemplate not only the intricacies of our biological makeup but also highlights ongoing challenges within healthcare when faced with conditions like psoriasis.
