Androgens are important in the pathogenesis of acne, and free testosterone in the serum is regarded as the biologically active component. In this study, serum free and total testosterone levels were measured in men (34) and women (14), suffering from acne but otherwise healthy. The plasma values for both groups of patients did not differ significantly from those of the age matched control groups.
