  • In their 60-year history, dapsone and the sulfones have been used as both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents. Dapsone has been used successfully to treat a range of dermatologic disorders, most successfully those characterized by abnormal neutrophil and eosinophil accumulation. This article reviews and updates the chemistry, pharmacokinetics, clinical application, mechanism of action, adverse effects, and drug interactions of dapsone and the sulfones in dermatology.
