The current hypothesis is that the HS primary event is a hyperkeratinization of the follicular infundibulum, followed by follicular occlusion, dilatation and rupture; the spread of bacterial and cellular remnants would trigger the local inflammatory response (3).
The hallmark of TCDD toxicity in humans is chloracne (Panteleyev and Bickers 2006), characterized by epidermal acanthosis and hyperkeratosis, and hyperkeratinization and metaplasia of the sebaceous glands, with comedone formation.

In order to evaluate the possible role of PA in the hyperkeratinization of the pilosebaceous duct, we focused on the proliferative response of HaCaT keratinocytes after treatment with PA in a concentration range of 75 to 150 [micro]mol/L by means of CCK-8 test.
