The authors present the immunopathologic findings of Toll-like receptor 2 in psoriasis. This novel work shows positive staining within the dermal capillaries in psoriatic lesions. Neither normal skin nor lesional skin in eczema showed similar staining. The authors postulate how the activation of this innate immune system reactant plays a significant role in psoriasis and show how it may be associated with a cascade of events that begins with streptococcus and ends with psoriasis.
