Abstract

Tetracyclines are known to exhibit multiple significant anti-inflammatory actions. This article describes the mechanisms of this anti-inflammatory activity, such as inhibition of chemotaxis, granuloma formation, and protease. The article also discusses the effectiveness of tetracyclines in treating such diseases as acne vulgaris, rosacea, bullous dermatoses, granulomatous disease, and livedo vasculitis.
