[The significance of the columar structure of the stratum corneum for the effect of light on the skin].

Abstract

Autologous full thickness skin autografts were carried out on 60 male guineapigs in such a way that the hair roots were destroyed. The light sensitivity of the skin towards UV B was then tested on the hairless skin by means of the Xenon lamp and the corresponding filter. Exploratory excisions were taken from another area of the graft and used to demonstrate the structure of the stratum corneum according to the method of Christophers. It could be shown that light erythema developed significantly less than when the columnar structure of the stratum cornuem was well developed.
