The aim of this study was to investigate the cellular immune profile and the expression of IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-alpha in tissue biopsies of pyostomatitis vegetans (PV). Working hypothesis was that knowledge of the cellular immune profile and role of mediators such as IL-6, IL-8 AND TNF-alpha may contribute to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of this rare entity. Archival tissues from three patients with clinically and histologically confirmed PV were studied. Analysis of the immune… CONTINUE READING
