Abstract

Background: Toll-like receptors (TLRs) have an important role in the host defense. Recent studies demonstrated that TLR polymorphisms might have a role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis vulgaris. The aim of this study was to indicate whether TLR2 rs11938228 and rs4696480 were associated with susceptibility to psoriasis in the Turkish population.
