Abstract

Introduction: Acne vulgaris is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Aim: To evaluate the role of serum copper levels in acne. Materials and Methods: Around 50 young female patients, aged between 13 to 19 years, suffering from Acne vulgaris (patients group) and 25 age matched healthy female attenders of patients without acne (control group). The copper levels were measured in the serum obtained from the fasting blood of patients group and control group. Results: Serum copper levels were in the normal range but lower than those of control subjects. Conclusion: Low serum copper levels could be one among the causes of acne.
