This work aimed to determine the effect of manganese in acne patients. This study showed statistically decreased in manganese levels in acne patients in the range (0.0185-0.0496) mg/dl compared with the normal value (0.05-0.07) mg/dl. The design of the project included twenty acne patient (11males, 9 females) and (15) apparently as controls (8 males, 7 females) .Sex difference was obtained as rises for manganese concentration (P≤0.05) in females when compared with those of the male patients. The influence of treatment was studied, the data stated significant increase (P≤0.05), in treated acne patients when compared with those of the untreated.
