Abstract

Primary function of the skin is a mechanical barrier, which makes it a key organ of native, unspecific immune system. But, if some patogen or any other enviromental factor enters through that barrier, a series of different mechanisms in skin are activated and therefore can be induced a specific immunological response. Immunological responses in skin can be cellular, in which mediators are immunological or other skin cells, or they can be humoral, in which mediators are soluble substances like antibodies, cytokines, chemokines, antimicrobial peptides, complements and other. Skin diseases like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, acne or tumors affect high percentage of human population, and their origin could be a concequence after some genetical or immunological disorder.
