A patient with multiple keratoacanthomas was successfully treated with oral isotretinoin. The treatment resulted in clearing of existing keratoacanthomas and prevented the development of new lesions. An induction dose of 1.5 mg/kg/day was necessary to initiate the response. This is the third report of successful treatment of multiple keratoacanthomas with isotretinoin.
