SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN BILIRUBIN LEVELS IN A PATIENT WITH GILBERT SYNDROME UNDER ISOTRETINOIN TREATMENT FOR ACNE VULGARIS: A NEW AREA OF USE FOR ...
Saylam Kurtipek G , et al.
«Gilbert's syndrome is a hereditary and benign disorder characterized by intermittent nonconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. A twenty-three- year-old patient with Gilbert syndrome and moderate acne vulgaris was started on isotretinoin at a dose of 20 mg/day. One month later, serum bilirubin levels were found to be significantlylower than that of the baseline levels. Recent studies in the literature also support that bilirubin levels tend to decrease in patients with Gilbert syndrome under oral isotretinoin therapy. This article is protected by copyright.
