Labia minora histology

The labia minora, also known as the inner labia, are two flaps of skin on either side of the human vaginal opening, situated between the labia majora (outer labia, or outer lips).  Inner lips vary widely in size, colour, and shape from woman to woman.  On the opposed surfaces of the labia minora are numerous sebaceous glands not associated with hair follicles.

This histological section features a sebaceous gland.  Also visible is the stratified squamous epithelia.  Note melanocytes.
