Background: Acne is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the pilosebaceous unit (PSU). The PSU is an immunocompetent organ, and the sebaceous gland (SG) exhibits an independent peripheral endocrine function and expresses receptors for neuropeptides (NP). The presence of a complete corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH)/CRH receptor (CRHR) system in human sebocytes has ...

Recent evidence suggests that acne vulgaris begins as an inflammation in and around the sebaceous gland and alterations in the lipid content of sebum, which drive hyperproliferation and increased desquamation of keratinocytes within sebaceous follicles. This prevents sebum drainage, causing the formation of microcomedones, which spontaneously regress or become acne ...
