“…It has been convincingly dem onstrated th at testosterone induces sebaceous gland hyperplasia [3,5,6,11] and acneiform eruptions developing during corticotropin and corticosteroid therapy are gener ally thought to result from androgenic activity possessed either by these substances themselves or by some metabolic derivative [1,13], Van Scott and MacCardle [12] consider th at the induction of a resting (telogen) phase in the hair roots plays a major role, whilst the work of Lasher, Lorincz and Rothman [8,9] suggests th at an anterior pituitary (" sebotropic") factor is involved. It has been stated th at cortisone actually causes mild sebaceous gland atrophy [7] and Sullivan and Zeligman [15] m aintain th at the acnegenic effect of corticotropin is mediated solely by hyperkeratosis and blocking of the follicular orifice. Strauss and Kligman [14,16], how ever, claim th at sebaceous gland hyperplasia is the prim ary event in corticosteroid-induced as well as in ordinary acne.…”
