Abstract
A theory concerning the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris is offered and, based on the theory, a rationale for treatment is presented. Acne vulgaris should be regarded as a cosmetically unacceptable biological variation in most cases, a syndrome rather than a disease. One must not lose sight of the occasional case in which it is the marker of an endocrine disorder.
