Occupational tropical acne.


Tropical acne, a major problem for military personnel assigned to hot, humid areas, has not been reported previously in the United States. Here, a case of tropical acne is reported in an occupational setting in which the working environment simulated tropical conditions. This raises the possibility that heat and humidity may be contributing factors to inflammatory acne in susceptible individuals.
