Acne vulgaris is one of the most common dermatologic disorders and may result in profound negative physical and psychosocial side effects including scarring, low self-esteem, depression and suicidal ideation.

Pediatricians associated with a tertiary-care children ’s hospital healthcare system in San Diego (n=116) underwent intensive, case-based education on acne assessment and treatment based on published acne treatment guidelines.

Patients meeting the inclusion criteria were randomized for 2 weeks to isotretinoin or doxycycline. Participants completed verified depression and QoL screening questionnaires at baseline and week...
