Abstract

There is increasing evidence that cytokines play an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory skin diseases including psoriasis. In this review a summary of current knowledge is given on how the altered cytokine network is involved in the accumulation of inflammatory cells in lesional skin and in the epidermal hyperproliferation seen in psoriasis. The actions of the most important therapeutic compounds, such as corticosteroids, dithranol, cyclosporine, retinoids, vitamin D3 analogues and ultraviolet radiation, on the cytokine system are also discussed.
