- another term for dermis
- ‘The dermis or corium underlying the epidermis is 0.3 to 4.0 mm in thickness and may be divided into two layers, papillary and reticular.’
- ‘Its upper of 2.8mm Idro-Perwanger silicon-impregnated roughcut leather comes from the corium, the section of cow skin just under the less-strong top grain.’

Early 19th century: from Latin, ‘skin’.
