Acanthosis Nigricans During Treatment With Aripiprazole
Am J Ther
Aripiprazole is typically regarded as a metabolically sparing agent, in contrast to other second-generation antipsychotics, which are widely known to lead to weight gain and increase the cardiometabolic risk. We report for the first time the emergence of Acanthosis nigricans, a dermatological correlate of insulin resistance, during treatment with aripiprazole in an adolescent with a family history of diabetes mellitus.
