Skin, healing injury.
This image illustrates skin healing after a minor injury.
Above the injury is pus, consisting mostly of inflammatory cells (white blood cells, especially neutrophils and lymphocytes) which have gathered at the site to fight infection.
The arrowheads indicate sites where epidermis is regenerating to cover the injured site.
For close ups of the healing site, click on an arrow in the image above or on one of the thumbnails at right.
