A small pimple or tubercle on the face.-Gorraeus. Foesius thinks the word ought to be Acme; and, according to Cassius, it is, at all events, derived from 'vigour;' the disease affecting those in the vigour of life especially. Willan and Bateman have adopted the term in their Nosology of cutaneous diseases, and placed it in the order TUBERCULA. Acne, with them, is an eruption of distinct, hard, inflamed tubercles, sometimes continuing for a considerable length of time, and sometimes suppurating slowly and partially. They usually appear on the forehead, temples, and chin, and are common to both sexes; but the most severe foi^ns are seen in young men. They require but little management, and consist of four varieties: See Gutta Rosea.
