About this book

"One Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words" CONFUCIUS The material on which this account is based derives from observations of several thousand of adolescents with acne. All have been treated; many hundreds have been biopsied and have participated in various tests. These constitute our bona fides. Our plan and intentions are as follows: Firstly, we have sought to create a portfolio of still-life pictures of the gross and microscopic anatomy of acne. This will be a photographic record of what acne looks like, of its usual and unusual features, its arch typical as well as of its recondite visages. Secondly, we wish to create a moving picture of acne rather than an atlas. We hope the reader will have the feeling of being in a theater watching an unusual drama. Since anatomy can only come to life when animated by physiology, a vigorous attempt has been made to collate function with structure. It is the eye that observes but it is the mind that sees. Finally, this book is intended for those who wish to understand and treat acne more effectively. The themes are programmed for the clinician. This book will be chiefly a didactic account and not a detailed report of research. We present ourselves as teachers, not as investigators. We conceive it to be the prime mission of medical research to learn how to identify, prevent, and treat the disease. We shall present our personal therapeutic strategies, the ones we use to treat acne patients.
