duct of sweat glands
the superficial portion of the sweat gland that passes through the corium and epidermis, opening on the surface by the porus sudoriferus or sweat pore.
Etymology: L, sudor, sweat, facere, to make
a duct leading from a sweat gland to the surface of the skin. Each sweat duct is the most superficial part of a coiled tube that forms the body of each sweat gland and opens onto the surface through a funnel-shaped opening. The sweat ducts in the armpits and in the groin are larger than in other parts of the body. Also called sweat duct.
