|Description:||The aprocrine sweat glands have a secretory portion and a ductal
portion. The epithelium of the secretory portion contains cuboidal or
low columnar cells, The cytoplasm is eosinophilic and may have apical
"blebs" that project into the wide lumens. Contractile myoepithelial
cells are found between the secretory cells and the basal lamina.
However, these may be difficult to make out without special stains. The
duct portion contains two layers of low cuboidal cells. The aprocrine
type of sweat gland is well developed in domestic mammals and are
located throughout most of the skin. Original mag. 50x H&E.
