A single 3–4 month course of isotretinoin 1–2 mg/kg/day can clear 60–95% of inflammatory lesions in patients with recalcitrant nodulocystic acne [1]. Unfortunately, however, the medication is also associated with several significant adverse effects including teratogenicity. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified isotretinoin as pregnancy category X, meaning that its teratogenicity outweighs its benefits to the pregnant patient.
