The skin is the outermost organ and protects the body from harmful environmental stimuli by forming a fine-tuned barrier system. It also provides a special immune surveillance system to maintain skin-specific immune homeostasis against external chemicals and allergens, surface microbiomes, ultraviolet ray radiation, etc. In addition, the skin serves a unique sensory organ to transduct pruritus, pain and other tactile neurologic signals. The malfunction or dysregulation of skin homeostasis causes a wide variety of cutaneous diseases, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, melanoma and autoimmune diseases, including vitiligo, alopecia and scleroderma. Many skin diseases exhibit a long-term and intractable clinical course and impact the quality of life of the afflicted patients. However, recent advances in pathogenetic analysis provide a new therapeutic approach, such as specific biologics, JAK inhibitors and other molecularly targeted drugs. As with other areas in medicine, the dermatological field is now facing a new era for emerging cutting-edge therapies. The scope of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of recent topics in the field of dermatology. Please submit an original article or review to this Special Issue (case reports and short reviews are not accepted).
