    An Introduction to Dermatology

    Autoimmunity and deregulation of the immune system contribute to many skin diseases including systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, psoriasis, vitiligo, alopecia areata and lichen sclerosus; as well as inflammatory diseases such as hidradenitis suppurativa, allergic contact dermatitis and atopic eczema; and also autoimmune blistering diseases, including pemphigus vulgaris, bullous pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita and dermatitis herpetiformis. Established treatments include systemic corticosteroids and immunosuppressive therapies, while new therapies in development include biologic therapies targeting cytokines such as tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukins IL-23 and IL-17; enzymes such as Janus kinase-1 (JAK-1); and the regulatory proteinretinoic acid receptor-related-orphan-receptor-gamma t (RORγt).
