Classically, the involvement of lymphocytes in inflammatory skin lesions has been associated with immunological responses, whereby the host expresses, or develops, enhanced reactivity to an inciting allergen. Yet it is also known that lymphocytes can contribute to inflammatory responses induced by non-allergic stimuli. These observations may be reconciled by considering the allergic response to be an enhanced version of a non-selective inflammatory response involving lymphocyte activation.
