Abstract

Topical retinoids have been employed in dermatology since the 1960s to treat a wide variety of cutaneous disorders. This review focuses on three areas in which retinoids have had their greatest impact: acne vulgaris, photoaging and cutaneous neoplasia. The pharmacology of the available topical retinoids, their mechanism of action and the history of their use in these disorders are discussed.
