Abstract

Rosacea is a common skin disorder marked by chronic inflammation and vascular abnormalities. Two new features of the skin lesions have been identified: elevated levels of cathelicidin antimicrobial peptides and of a related serine protease. These molecules of innate immunity may represent key elements of pathogenesis, as well as new targets for effective therapies (pages 975-981).
