Fig. 10 (orig. Fig. 119). Two "mantle hairs" from face. Vellus follicles with atrophic sebaceous glands (s) which form a skirt around the follicular isthmus. Pronounced bulge (b). H&E; 3 50. (From Pinkus, H. in The Skin. Baltimore, Williams & Wilkins, 1971.)
Mantles are atrophic sebaceous glands.
The collars of stratified epithelium referred to by Felix Pinkus as mantles actually are a malformation that is particularly common on the face and a source of milia.
Mantles are both anlagen and residua of sebaceous glands.
Hermann Pinkus' interpretation of the mantle differed entirely from that of his father. Felix Pinkus regarded the mantle as a source for cells of sebaceous glands and never stated that the mantle was a precursor of milia.
