Mucocutaneous Zone (Junction)


The transitional region of skin comprising of both inner (mucosa) and outer (cutaneous) foreskin. These types of junctions occur near the orifices of the body where the external skin stops and mucosa tissue begins. 

Examples of these junctions are the lips of the month, the eyelids, the male foreskin (at the ridged band), the female vulva and the anus (perianal zone).
