Isotretinoin is indicated for the treatment of severe recalcitrant nodulocystic acne. Isotretinoin also known as 13-cis retinoic acid, is classified as a retinoid, which is a synthetic analogue of vitamin A. Its exact mechanism of action is not known. When administered in pharmacologic dosages, isotretinoin inhibits sebaceous gland function and keratinization. In nodular acne, clinical improvement is associated with a reduction in sebum secretion which is related to the dose and duration of isotretinoin treatment. Retinoids affect the keratinization process, and therefore without specificity exhibit effectiveness in all types of hyperkeratotic conditions.
