Increased tissue leptin hormone level and mast cell count in skin tags: a possible role of adipoimmune in the growth of benign skin growths.


BACKGROUND Skin tags (ST) are common tumors. They mainly consist of loose fibrous tissue and occur on the neck and major flexures as small, soft, pedunculated protrusions. Decrease in endocrine, hormone level and other factors are thought to play a role in the evolution of ST. Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that acts as a major regulatory hormone… (More)
