L'acné est une affection inflammatoire du follicule pilosébacé sous influence hormonale. Les agents thérapeutiques peuvent être classés en antiséborrhéiques (isotrétinoïne et antiandrogènes), « antirétentionnels » (antiandrogènes et rétinoïdes topiques), anti-inflammatoires (rétinoïdes et peroxyde de benzoyle topiques, cyclines). Le choix thérapeutique dépend du type et de la sévérité de l'acné, de l'âge et du sexe. Parfois, l'acné juvénile est le reflet d'un hyperandrogénisme ovarien ou même surrénalien.

Acne is an androgen-dependant inflammatory folliculitis with non-inflammatory lesions (open and closed comedos) and inflammatory papules, pustules and sometimes nodules. Topical retinoïds, benzoyl peroxyde, antibiotics with anti-inflammatory properties, antiandrogens in female acne (antiandrogens and antiandrogenic oral contraceptives), and isotretinoin are the major drugs used in the management of the affection. Acne has to be treated according to the type of acne, severity, age and sex. Acne may also be the major sign of ovarian (PCOS) or adrenal hyperandrogenism in either female teenagers or both sexes, respectively.
