Could isotretinoin flare hidradenitis suppurativa? A case series.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Dermatology, Tallaght University Hospital, Tallaght, Dublin 24, Ireland.

We report eight cases of patients with severe acne who were treated with isotretinoin and developed painful nodules in the axillae and groin, consistent with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). The pathogenesis of HS is still not completely understood; recent research from a study in 2011 of biopsies from HS lesions showed a reduction or absence of sebaceous glands compared with normal skin in patients with HS, with the report suggesting that this contributes to the pathogenesis of the disease. Interestingly, the main effect of isotretinoin is to decrease the size and action of sebaceous glands, so hypothetically, as isotretinoin acts by reducing the sebaceous glands further it could potentially aggravate HS.

Disfiguring ulcerative neutrophilic dermatosis secondary to doxycycline and isotretinoin in an adolescent boy with acne conglobata.

Cutis 2017 Dec;100(6):E23-E26

Department of Pediatrics, Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Acne fulminans is an uncommon and debilitating disease that presents as an acute eruption of nodular and ulcerative acne lesions in association with systemic symptoms. It occurs commonly during treatment of severe acne (eg, acne conglobata) with isotretinoin in young adolescent male patients. Isotretinoin and doxycycline also can potentially induce development of neutrophilic dermatoses in patients with severe acne lesions, which are characterized by the acute appearance of painful ulcerative papulonodules accompanied by systemic symptoms including fever and leukocytosis.

Int J Womens Dermatol 2017 Sep 13;3(3):145-150. Epub 2017 Jul 13.

Department of Dermatology, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, CT.

The treatment of acne during pregnancy is often limited by the potential toxicities that are posed to the fetus by the most common and effective acne therapies. As with all dermatoses during pregnancy, the treatment of acne vulgaris in this population requires a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits that are inherent to each treatment. We report on a case of a 30-year-old pregnant patient with severe acne conglobata who showed significant improvement with a combination treatment of topical modalities, oral metronidazole, and low dose prednisone during pregnancy.

Department of Dermatology, Andreas Syggros Hospital, University of Athens, 5, Dragoumi str, 16121, Athens, Greece.

Acne is the most common of skin diseases, being characterized as a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit. Although acne is usually straightforward to diagnose and treat, some patients have difficult or rare forms of acne. What seems to be "nonresponding acne" in a patient may be caused by another acneiform disease that clinically mimics acne, thus misleading the clinician, if not ruled out, with scrutiny. Read More

Borrone Dermato-Cardio-Skeletal (BDCS) syndrome is a severe progressive autosomal recessive disorder characterized by coarse facies, thick skin, acne conglobata, dysmorphic facies, vertebral abnormalities and mitral valve prolapse. We identified a consanguineous kindred with a child clinically diagnosed with BDCS. Linkage analysis of this family (BDCS1) identified five regions homozygous by descent with a maximum LOD score of 1. Read More

Short-term clinical effects of photodynamic therapy with topical 5-aminolevulinic acid for facial acne conglobata: an open, prospective, parallel-arm trial.

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2013 Oct;29(5):233-8

Department of Dermatology, Lanzhou General Hospital of Lanzhou Military Area Command, Lanzhou, China.

Background: Acne conglobata is hardly curable and easily leads to scar formation after treatment using traditional methods.

Aim: To develop a novel way to treat acne conglobata.

Methods: Seventy-five patients with facial acne conglobata were included in this clinical study and divided into either a treatment group (n = 35) to receive photodynamic therapy (PDT) with topical 5% 5-aminolevulinic acid and red light once every 10 days for a month or a control group (n = 40) to receive a Chinese herbal medicine mask plus red light once per week for the same duration.
