A diminutive of Area, (F.) Aire. Anatomists understand by Areola the interstices between the fibres composing organs, or those existing between laminae, or between vessels which interlace with each other. Areola is also applied to the coloured circle Halo, Halos, which surrounds the nipple, Areola papillaris, and which becomes much darker during pregnancy; as well as to the circle surrounding certain vesicles, pustules, &c., as the pustules of the small-pox, the vaccine vesicle, &c. Chaussier, in such cases, recommends the word Aureola, (F.) Aureole.
