Abstract

Objective: Oral isotretinoin is an efficient treatment used commonly in treating the moderate and severe acne. It has various side effects that affect many systems in the body. In this study, we are planning to examine the possible effects of the oral isotretinoin on platelet density, mean platelet volume, neutrophil lymphocyte rate, platelet lymphocyte rate, and red-blood-cell distribution width level.
