Abstract Macrolide‐resistant Propionibacterium acnes are frequently isolated from patients with acne vulgaris, and the most resistant isolates (>90% resistance) have the 23S rRNA mutation. An increase in resistant P. acnes with this mutation is thought to be caused by the inappropriate use of antimicrobials. Therefore, we studied the mutation frequency of macrolide resistance in P. acnes in vitro. When P. acnes mutants were exposed to clarithromycin after being incubated in broth without antimicrobials, resistant mutants with the 23S rRNA mutation were not isolated. However, the mutants were obtain...

Subcision is a commonly performed procedure for depressed rolling scars of acne.1 Breaking up the fibrotic strands mechanically with a blade or needle leads to neocollagenosis and hematoma formation, resulting in elevation of the depressed scars. However, the excessive mechanical force often leads to trauma to the surrounding tissue, excessive bleeding, and large hematoma formation and fibrosis.

The cutaneous manifestations of obesity and the associated metabolic syndrome (MetS) may present with a wide variety of cutaneous findings, including acanthosis nigricans, acrochordon, cellulitis, psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, acne, and hirsutism. Being aware of such clinical signs and the underlying systemic disorders may facilitate earlier diagnoses, thereby permitting earlier of therapy initiation and prevention of long-term sequelae. In this process, dermatologists are key figures in the early detection of MetS and its clinical manifestations.

Acne vulgaris is an epidemic inflammatory disease of the human sebaceous follicle and represents the most common skin disease affecting about 85% of adolescents in Westernized populations. Acne vulgaris is primarily a disease of wealthy countries and exhibits higher prevalence rates in developed compared with developing countries. No acne has been found in non-Westernized populations still living under Paleolithic dietary conditions constraining hyperglycemic carbohydrates, milk, and dairy products.

The metabolic syndrome (MetS), also termed syndrome X, the deadly quartet, and insulin resistance syndrome, has been of interest for many years; however, there has been a striking increase in the prevalence of MetS over the last few decades, coinciding with the global epidemic of obesity and diabetes mellitus.1,2 MetS is a constellation of several clinical and laboratory findings that have been reported to be associated with numerous medical and dermatologic conditions, such as psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, and acne vulgaris; moreover, the severity of psoriasis is significantly associated with MetS at higher psorias...
