Emerging role of immune cell network in autoimmune skin disorders: An update on pemphigus, vitiligo and psoriasis.
Last Updated: Jun 28, 2019

Autoimmune skin diseases are a group of disorders that arise due to a deregulated immune system resulting in skin tissue destruction. In the majority of these conditions, either autoreactive immune cells or the autoantibodies are generated against self-antigens of the skin. Although ...

Perspectives of New Advances in the Pathogenesis of Vitiligo: From Oxidative Stress to Autoimmunity.
Last Updated: Apr 09, 2019

Vitiligo is an autoimmune cutaneous disease in which melanocytes are destroyed by CD8⁺ T cells resulting in disfiguring white spots. From the very beginning of the disease, oxidative stress plays a significant role in promoting the onset of vitiligo, as noted by many studies. Multiple ...

The largest epidermal cyst with vitiligo lesions following female genital mutilation: a case report and literature review.
Last Updated: Apr 09, 2019

Epidermoid vulvar cystic lesions are proliferations of epidermal cells that can occur as a complication of female genital mutilation (FGM), which is still a common practice in many cultures, especially in Africa. A 36-year-old Sudanese woman presented with an enlarged clitoral mass ...

Last Updated: Jul 03, 2019

Vitiligo is a common and acquired skin pigmentation disorder characterized by a selective and often continuous loss of epidermal melanocytes. We report the case of a female patient who developed facial vitiligo following platelet-rich plasma injections. The diagnosis of Koebner phenomenon ...

Innate lymphocyte-induced CXCR3B-mediated melanocyte apoptosis is a potential initiator of T-cell autoreactivity in vitiligo.
Last Updated: Jun 07, 2019

T-cells play a crucial role in progression of autoimmunity, including vitiligo, yet the initial steps triggering their activation and tissue damage remain unknown. Here we demonstrate increased presence of type-1 innate lymphoid cells (NK and ILC1)-producing interferon gamma (IFNγ) ...
