Abstract

Background/aim: Recent data draw attention to the effect of body composition, insulin resistance, and adipocytokines to acne vulgaris (AV) development. The aim of this study was to assess the association of AV with insulin resistance and adipocytokine levels and to evaluate the effect of isotretinoin on insulin resistance and adipocytokine levels.
