We report one case of very severe acne-like lesions associated with amineptine (Survector). They were most prominent on the face and back, but were also observed on sites not affected by acne vulgaris, such as perineum, arms and legs. The lesions appeared after long-term self-medication of high doses. Keratoacanthoma-like lesions were also present, and the small ones were successfully treated with topical imiquimod. The case is significant since the disease is quite rare.
