Immunodermatology

The study, diagnosis and treatment of the Immune-Mediated Skin Diseases such as psoriasis are termed as ImmunodermatologyAutoimmune diseases are those diseases in which our body immune system erroneously acts against our own healthy cells or tissues or parts of the body. Some of the diseases like Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE), Bullous Pemphigoid (BP) and Pemphigus Vulgaris (PV) fall under this category.  In case of Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) or commonly known as lupus, most commonly facial tissues are targeted. Though the root cause is not entirely clear, it is believed that some hormonesenvironmental and genetic factors are responsible for the occurrence of the disease. There is no medication wbut corticosteroidsimmunosuppressantshydroxychloroquine and methotrexate will help to diminish the effects. Bullous Pemphigoid and Pemphigus Vulgaris are rare chronic blistering skin diseases which come under Type II Hypersensitivity and are autoimmune disordersImmunofluorescence study will help to diagnose these diseases.
