Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by erythemato-squamous plaques with epidermal hyperplasia, increased vascularity, and a dermal mixed infiltrate of dendritic cells, T-lymphocytes, and natural killer cells [1]. Neutrophilic granulocytes are also key infiltrating cells in plaque psoriasis, where they are attracted by chemokines, growth-related oncogene α, and interleukin (IL)-8, released by activated keratinocytes and endothelial cells [2].The dialogue between psoriatic keratinocytes, [...]
