Özet

Background Isotretinoin is widely used in the treatment of severe, recalcitrant, nodular acne. Mucocutaneous side-effects are seen in the great majority of patients and some of them have elevations in their serum lipid and liver enzyme profiles. Recently, it has been shown that addition of vitamin E decreased the toxicity of high-dose retinoids.
