We report a case of acne fulminans occurring during treatment with 13-cis-retinoic acid for cystic acne. Continuing the treatment with 13-cis-retinoic acid without systemic steroid eventually cleared the systemic manifestations and skin lesions. We review the literature and discuss its pathogenesis.
