Riassunto

La cute è uno degli organi più complessi e multifunzionali dell’organismo. È dotata di specifiche funzioni e attività: la funzione barriera, l’attività termoregolatrice e sensoriale, le funzioni di deposito e metaboliche, la funzione endocrina, le funzioni secretorie e di mantenimento dell’omeostasi pressoria.
