Abstract

During fall 2008, 10 roundtable discussions involving 70 practicing dermatologists and a physician assistant were conducted across the United States to address patient considerations and treatment strategies for acne vulgaris. A case study format was used to initiate discussion. This supplement is based on the issues raised during the roundtable discussions and at a final working session among the authors where suggestions, trends, and the consensus from each of the 10 roundtable discussions were reviewed regarding published, evidence-based recommendations for treating acne vulgaris. Effective treatment of acne vulgaris can prevent adverse emotional sequelae and physical scarring. We hope that the information presented herein will help guide our colleagues in improving the care of patients with acne vulgaris.
