Pharmacologic agents such as steroid hormones and isotretinoin are well-known triggers, and several cases have been described. We report a case of AF occurring a few days after lymecycline therapy initiation. Read More

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.

Isotretinoin-induced acne fulminans without systemic symptoms with concurrent exuberant granulation tissue.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Mar 4;35(2):257-258. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA.

Acne fulminans is a severe form of acne characterized by painful, inflammatory nodules that progress into ulcers and concurrent systemic symptoms. Treatment of acne with isotretinoin can precipitate a syndrome called isotretinoin-induced acne fulminans without systemic symptoms. An exuberant granulation tissue response, another known adverse event associated with isotretinoin, can occur concurrently, inhibiting wound repair and complicating treatment. Read More

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Feb;19(1):79-86

Department of Dermatology, University of California San Francisco, 1701 Divisadero Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA, 94115, USA.

Rosacea fulminans is a rare inflammatory condition of the central face marked by the abrupt onset of erythematous coalescing papules, pustules, nodules, and draining sinuses. Due to infrequent reporting in the literature, the pathophysiology, classification, and nomenclature of this condition remain controversial. This comprehensive review evaluated a total of 135 cases of rosacea fulminans for clinical and histopathologic features and reported treatment strategies. Read More

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

Reumatol Clin 2018 Mar - Apr;14(2):109-112. Epub 2016 Dec 16.

Unidad de Gestión Clínica de Pediatría, Hospital Universitario San Cecilio, Granada, España.

The acronym of SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis) combines a cluster of cutaneous and musculoskeletal manifestations, such as hyperostosis of bones of the anterior chest wall associated with acne fulminans and hidradenitis suppurativa. There are no validated diagnostic criteria in children. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are not always sufficient, and the use of corticosteroids, disease-modifying agents, tumor necrosis factor-α inhibitors or bisphosphonates may be necessary.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2016 Mar-Apr;7(2):93-5

Department of Dermatology, Army College of Medical Sciences, Base Hospital, Delhi, India.

Acne fulminans (AF) is a very rare severe form of acne seen in young males, characterized by a sudden and explosive onset of hemorrhagic pustules and ulceration on the trunk, systemic features in the form of fever, polyarthropathy, malaise, erythema nodosum and painful osteolytic bone involvement with leukocytosis, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Conventional treatment of AF includes corticosteroids or immunosuppressive agents for the initial phase followed by isotretinoin. Active hepatitis B infection with a high viral load precludes the administration of any immunosuppressive drugs. Read More

Serum levels of hypersensitive-C-reactive protein in moderate and severe acne.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2015 Jul-Aug;6(4):253-7

Department of Dermatology, Molecular Dermatology Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Background: Elevation of C-reactive protein (CRP) has been reported to occur in psoriasis, urticaria, acne, rosacea and many other dermatological and nondermatological conditions. Chronic systemic inflammation has been implicated in the development of neuropsychiatric/degenerative disorders, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus and even carcinogenesis. The present study is designed to determine whether the level of inflammation created by acne vulgaris could be high enough to raise the serum levels of high-sensitive CRP. Read More

Acne fulminans is a rare and serious condition characterized by the sudden onset of nodular and ulcerative acne lesions associated with systemic symptoms. It has been recognized a subset of patients with a sudden worsening of acne, often during treatment with oral isotretinoin, but without the strong presence of systemic involvement. Recognized by some authors as "pseudo-acne fulminans" or " acne fulminans sine fulminans," we report a case with these features in order to draw attention to the recognition and early management of this manifestation.
