Various immune cells and their messenger substances influence the development of psoriasis. Cytokines of the IL-17 family are of particular importance. In addition to IL-17A, which plays a central role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis, other subtypes of the IL-17 family also have a proinflammatory effect. This review provides an up-to-date overview of the immunopathogenesis of psoriasis with regard to the six IL-17 subtypes, in particular their physiological and pathogenic properties, as well as their significance for psoriasis therapy.
