[Amineptin dependence and iatrogenic acne. Review of the literature apropos of a case].

PMID: 1839203  

We relate the case of a drug addict of 31 years old whose dependence to the amineptine got complicated with severe acne-like lesions, as it sometimes happens. Compared, with teenage acne, severe acne can be distinguished by its late out break, its monstrous nature and its larger surface area. Amineptine has been found (or its metabolites) in the plasma, the urine. The treatment consists in the stopping of the drug addiction, combined with the prescription of isotretinoin.
