Picture of Acne Vulgaris Nodulocystic

Inflammatory nodules, cysts, and pustules (left). Ruptured cysts have coalesced and have led to painful disfiguring inflammatory nodules. This 23-year-old female was resistant to oral and topical treatment and has developed some scarring. The photograph on the right exhibits a remarkable remission of the disfiguring acne following a course of oral isotretinoin, 1 mg/kg, over a period of 4 months.
