Abstract

Many dermatology patients have significant psychiatric comorbidities, including depression and suicidal ideation. In light of the isotretinoin controversy, the relevance of this subject has never been greater. Therefore, it is imperative for dermatologists to understand the appropriate actions to take when faced with a potentially suicidal patient. We present a case of a clinic patient who expressed suicidal intent and discuss necessary steps to take in such a situation.
