Abstract

A deficiency of essential fatty acid intake can produce severe cutaneous abnormalities but is exceedingly rare in clinical practice. Recent research has shown that abnormalities in essential fatty acid metabolism may play a role in atopic eczema, acne, and psoriasis. Therapeutic innovations have already resulted from this knowledge, and more are likely to emerge.
