Objective: The Montreal Cognitive Assessment scale ( MoCA) is a test used to assess cognitive impairment quickly in clinical practice. Short-term memory, visual-spatial functions, executive functions, attention, concentration, working memory, language, and orientation can be evaluated with this test. The aim of this study was to investigate whether cognitive functions in severe acne vulgaris (AV) disease are affected by anxiety and depression that acne may trigger.
