Isotretinoin is used to treat severe cystic acne (also known as nodular acne) that has not responded to other treatment (e.g., benzoyl peroxide or clindamycin applied to the skin or tetracycline or minocycline taken by mouth).

Isotretinoin belongs to a class of medicine known as retinoids. It works by decreasing facial oil (sebum) production.

Isoretinoin, also known as 13-cis retinoic acid, first marketed as Accutane,  is a medication primarily used to treat cystic acne.

Rarely, it is also used to prevent certain skin cancers (squamous-cell carcinoma), and in the treatment of other cancers. It is used to treat harlequin-type ichthyosis, a usually lethal skin disease, and lamellar ichthyosis. It is a retinoid, meaning it is related to vitamin A, and is found in small quantities naturally in the body.
