IMMUNODERMATOLOGY studies skin as an organ of immunity in health and disease. Several areas have special attention, such as photo-immunology (effects of UV light on skin defense), inflammatory diseases such as Hidradenitis suppurativa , allergic contact dermatitis and atopic eczema , presumably autoimmune skin diseases such as vitiligo and psoriasis , and finally the immunology of microbial skin diseases such as retrovirus infections and leprosy . New therapies in development for the immunomodulation of common immunological skin diseases include biologicals aimed at neutralizing TNF-alfa and chemokine receptor inhibitors.
