ISOTRETHINOINE IN ACNE THERAPY

Cover Page

Abstract


Systemic retinoids are known to be the most effective means of treating severe forms of acne. However, in spite of longstanding and intensive practice of their application in dermatology, some specialists still avoid prescribing this group of drugs. As a rule, this is due to lack of awareness of health professionals about therapy techniques and means of correcting possible adverse events. We discuss the clinical aspects of administration of isotretinoin in treatment of moderate and severe forms of acne. Practical recommendations are given on how to prevent various myths, misconceptions and prejudices in health professionals and patients. We present our own experience of using isotretinoin with increased bioavailability (Acnecutan®*).
