Özet

Background and Design: Acne vulgaris, a multifactorial disease, is one of the most common skin disorders characterized by androgenic stimulation of sebaceous glands. In this study, we aimed to further understand the antiandrogenic effects of isotretinoin, cyproterone acetate/ethynil estradiol (CTA/EE) and isotretinoin+CTA/EE combination treatments on serum androgenic hormone levels.
