文献摘要

  Acne vulgaris is a common disorder that affects more than 17 million individuals in the United States. Knowledge of the disease is an important part of clini- cal practice, particularly for the pédiatrie practitioner. Contrary to common belief, acne is not a disease lim- ited to adolescents and young adults but can occur at any stage of life. This article is a case-based review of acne during cbikihood and adolescence. Workup is based on age and concurrent physical Findings, whereas tber- apy depends on the t\npe of skin lesions along with patient characteristics and preferences.
