Successful treatment of hypertrophic lupus erythematosus with isotretinoin.

Abstract

A patient with systemic lupus erythematosus had the additional finding of hypertrophic lupus erythematosus. The lesions cleared with an 11-week course of isotretinoin alone. She has remained without recurrence for 9 months. This is the first reported case of total resolution of hypertrophic lupus erythematosus with a short course of isotretinoin.
