had asked the same question but the answer given by ma'am is not clearing my doubt. SO please help me.

If fascile is surrounded by perimysium then what does fascia do?

I am confused because I have read that fascia is a sheath of connective tissue which is present around fasicle and the same is for perimysium.

Please clear my confusion.


Dera student,
You are correct both fascia and perimysium are connective tissue but fascia is the connective tissue which is present above the epimysium, it also covers the entire muscles like epimysium. It separates muscles from other organs. Perimysium is the connective tissue which covers the bundles of muscle fibres called fascicles.. Fascicle are made up of myocytes or muscle fibre.
