Acne is almost ubiquitous in the teenage years, differences between individuals being a matter of severity of disease and facility with which scarring develops. Peak severity is in the late teenage years but acne may persist into the third decade and beyond, particularly in females.
There are three pathogenetic factors –
The first is elevated sebum excretion.
The second factor in the pathogenesis of acne is infection with Propionibacterium acnes.
The third factor is occlusion or blockage of the pilosebaceous unit.
CLINICAL FEATURES :-
Lesions are usually limited to the face, shoulders, upper chest and back. Seborrhoea (greasy skin) is often clinically obvious. Open comedones (black heads) due to plugging by keratin and sebum of the pilosebaceous orifice, or closed comedones (white heads) due to accretions of sebum and keratin deeper in the pilosebaceous ducts, are usually evident. Inflammatory papules, nodules and cysts occur with one or types of lesion predominating. Scarring may follow.
