Abstract

The authors show that the use of Isotretinoin (Ro 4-3740) in cystic acne brings a reduction of chemotactic activity of the neutrophil granulocytes, like another retinoid. Etretinate, in pustular and vulgar psoriasis. This effect of retinoids, with a direct action on the polymorphonuclear leukocytes plays an important role in the recovery of the disease.
