PURPOSE OF REVIEW Eczematous skin diseases, including atopic dermatitis, are characterized by T-cell infiltration into the epidermal compartment. Whereas an active role of the main constituents of the epidermis, the keratinocytes, has long been neglected, it has become clear in the last decade that they are important, immunological active cells. This review highlights the recent work published between March 2005 and May 2006 that expands our knowledge about keratinocyte-T-cell interactions in… CONTINUE READING
