Acne, once considered as a mere esthetic problem, is now recognized as a disease that can cause major disturbances of the psychological and emotional sphere. Currently, the treatment of acne is focused on one or more pathogenic factors: hormonal stimulation and sebaceous hypersecretion, disorder of keratinization, colonization of Propionibacterium acnes and inflammation. The aim of the paper was to evaluate the use of inositol in patients with moderate acne.
