Isotretinoin is a vitamin-A derivative most commonly utilized in the treatment of severe recalcitrant nodulocystic acne. Derangement of lipid metabolism leading to increased triglyceride and cholesterol level has been reported after taking this drug. We report the case of a 43-year-old female with no identifiable risk factor for pancreatitis who developed acute pancreatitis associated with hyperlipidemia while being treated with isotretinoin for hidradenitis suppurativa. To our knowledge, this is the third reported case of isotretinoin-induced hyperlipidemia leading to acute pancreatitis.
