High-dose vitamin A therapy for Darier's disease.


Three patients with Darier's disease were treated with 1 X 10(6) IU of orally administered vitamin A daily for 14 days. In all patients, 50% to 80% improvement in the skin lesions was noted. Desquamation was minimal, and side effects consisted of drowsiness, mild frontal headache, dry lips and dry nose. During therapy, all patients had a transient, mild increase in the serum triglyceride level, and two patients had a minimal increase in the serum cholesterol concentration.
