This study of spontaneous abortions and fetal deaths in utero used immunostains to evaluate the structure of developing cutaneous nerves. Melan-A immunostains were also used to screen 25 cases of grossly normal fetal skin for occult fetal nevi. Discrete portions of epidermis were generally supplied by branches emanating from regularly spaced deep cutaneous nerves, producing a wedge shape, interpreted as neurocutaneous units (NCU). Deeper nerves embraced broader portions of epidermis. Some… CONTINUE READING
