A dermatome is an area of skin that is mainly supplied by a single spinal nerve. There are eight cervical nerves, twelve thoracic nerves, five lumbar nerves and five sacral nerves. Each of these nerves relays sensation (including pain) from a particular region of skin to the brain.
NOTE: *** Dermatomes are variable between individuals and the patter of sensory loss is usually less than the entire dermatome because of overlap. The map and landmarks presented in the Dermatomes App represent a consensus view drawn from numerous sources. ***
