Etiology and pathogeny

Etiology of medicamentous acnes (see. "Classification"). As the reason of development of Majorca acne serves the excessive maintenance of fat bases in the used photoprotective equipment, and also influence of Ural federal district. The Pitirosporalny folliculitis is caused by mushrooms of the sort Pityrosporum ovale. An acne varioliformny (acne necrotica, an acne ospennovidny) — a rare chronic recurrent disease of not clear etiology.

Clinical signs and symptoms

The general for akneformny dermatitis are the following clinical signs:
• the sudden beginning within several days;
• often widespread nature of rashes;
• atypical localization;
• age, unusual to an acne illness;
• existence of monomorphic rashes (papules or papulopustules) which are at one stage of development.

Medicamentous acnes are characterized by sudden emergence of the widespread monomorphic rashes which are localized mainly on skin of distal departments of extremities. The disease usually begins in the post-pubertal period. After cancellation of the HP which became the reason of emergence of rashes they spontaneously disappear.

Additional laboratory researches:

• research of the hormonal status at women in the presence of clinical signs of a giperandrogenemiya (FSG, LG, free fraction of testosterone, etc.);
allocation and identification of microbic flora of skin with determination of its sensitivity to antibiotics; bacteriological research calla; general blood test; KSR.
