Abstract (Original Language): 
Akne vulgaris, aile hekimleri ve dermatologların sıkça karşılaştıkları bir deri hastalığıdır; Tedavi edilmediğinde emosyonel ve fiziksel bozukluklara neden olarak sosyal izolasyon, iş bulma güçlüğü, depresyon ve intihara yol açabilmektedir. Hafif ve orta şiddette akne tedavisinin aile hekimi tarafından yapılması, tedaviye dirençli ve şiddetli akne olgularının dermatologa sevk edilmesi uygun bir yaklaşım olacaktır.
Abstract (2. Language): 
Acne vulgaris is a common skin disease, which is frequently seen by both family physicians and dermatologists. When acne is untreated, it can cause social isolation, difficulty in finding jobs, depression and suicide as a result of emotional and physical scar formation. Mild to moderate acne should be treated by family physicians appropriately. Patients should be referred to dermatol¬ogists when there is no response to the treatment or in the pres¬ence of severe acne.
