In addition to main types of fibrosis, other types of fibrosis in incredible diseases have been reported. Among them, liver fibrosis, stroke, and rhinosinusitis are described as new cases of periostin action. To understand periostin function in a new area of fibrosis linked with inflammation, periostin can be used as a new tool to elucidate the mechanisms of unknown diseases.
