Anal verge

German: Linea anocutanea

The anal verge designates an anatomical structure of the anus. It marks the transition of the anal skin (anoderm) to the normal outer skin (epidermis). This boundary is the distal ending of the anal canal.

Close to the anal verge, the lower margin of the ring-shaped inner anal sphincter (Musculus sphinter ani internus) is palpable.
