ⓘ Acne conglobata

Acne conglobata is a highly inflammatory disease presenting with comedones, nodules, abscesses, and draining sinus tracts.

This condition usually begins between the ages of 18 to 30 years. It usually persists for a very long time, and often until the patient is about 40 years. Although it often occurs where there is already an active acne problem, it can also happen to people whose acne has subsided. Although the cause of this type of acne is unknown, it is associated with testosterone, and therefore occurs mainly in men. This can be caused by anabolic steroid abuse and sometimes appears in men after stopping testosterone therapy. This can also happen to someone who has a tumor which secretes large amounts of androgens, or people in remission from diseases such as leukemia. In some individuals, the condition may be caused by exposure to aromatic hydrocarbons or ingestion of Halogens.
