Pacinian Corpuscle Histology

  • Pacinian corpuscles are present in the skin and in some mucous membranes.
  • mechanoceptors that respond to pressure or any mechanical stimulus deforming the corpuscle.
  • generally located deep in the dermis layer near the border with the hypodermis.


Named after Filippo Pacini (1812-1883) an Italian anatomist, published in 1840, and the name "Pacini's corpuscles" was proposed in 1844 by Henle and also by Kölliker.
