deglove
 v.— «There are three types of degloving injuries that may occur as the result of farm machinery accidents. These are (1) complete anatomical degloving in which the skin is actually removed from the limb, (2) concealed degloving in which the underlying attachment of the skin is avulsed from the soft tissue, but there is no disruption in the skin itself; and (3) a combination of the anatomical and concealed varieties.» —by James A. Dosman Principles of Health and Safety in Agriculture Oct. 31, 1989. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
