Abstract

Hair follicles, or pilosebacous units, are complicated anatomic structures. Analysis of abnormalities of these structures can be difficult without adequate knowledge of normal changes associated with embryonic and postnatal development as well as regular cycling. A variety of systematic approaches to analysis of the pilosebacous unit are provided here.
