Background: Recent studies suggest that Th17 cells participate in atopic dermatitis to a lesser degree than psoriasis and points towards Th22 cells critically contributing more to inflammation in the atopic skin lesions. The aim of this study was to investigate the participation of cells of the Th17/Th22 lineage and regulatory Tcells in acute AD lesions, clinically uninvolved AD skin and examine their dynamics in the evolution and resolution of atopic patch tests.
