Abstract. The optical model of polycrystalline networks in human skin has been suggested. The results of investigation of the values of statistical (statistical moments of the 1st to 4th orders) parameters describing polarization of inhomogeneous images obtained for skin surface in Fourier domain have been presented. The diagnostic criteria of pathological processes in human skin and its severity degree differentiation have been determined.

Keywords: polarization, Fourier optics and signal processing, imaging systems, medical and biological imaging, polarization speckle.
