BACKGROUND: What lesions to select for a most efficient dermatoscopic monitoring of patients with multiple nevi remains an unresolved issue. OBJECTIVE: To compare the grade of atypia of melanomas and nevi of the same patient at baseline. METHODS: Prospective observational study using 236 dermatoscopic baseline images (59 quartets from 59 patients, each including 1 melanoma detected during follow-up and 3 nevi). Dermatologists (n=26) were asked to assess the "grade of dermatoscopic atypia" on a numerical scale and to identify the melanomas...

INTRODUCTION: The size and number of acquired melanocytic nevi (AMN) and presence of dysplastic nevi are the leading risk factors that should be recognized in the development of malignant melanoma. AIM: To evaluate AMN and risk factors in the development of AMN in all age groups admitted to a dermatology outpatient clinic. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Four hundred and twelve patients who were admitted to the dermatology outpatient clinic for any dermatological symptom and who accepted to participate in the study were randomly included in the study...

Background: Pigmented purpuric dermatosis is a chronic skin disorder of unknown aetiology characterised by symmetrical petechial and pigmented macules, often confined to the lower limbs. The aetiology of pigmented purpuric dermatosis is unknown. Dermatoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that allows the visualisation of morphological features invisible to the naked eye; it combines a method that renders the corneal layer of the skin translucent with an optical system that magnifies the image projected onto the retina...

A 68-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic eruption predominantly on the proximal pretibial region of the right lower extremity, which had been present for many months. Her medical history was remarkable for diabetes and hypothyroidism. Physical examination demonstrated "cayenne pepper"-like brown macules, scattered petechiae, and multiple minute, blanching telangiectasias (Figure 1) that were more evident on dermatoscopy (Figure 2). The clinical differential diagnosis included a benign pigmented purpura (BBP; Schamberg type), telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, essential telangiectasia, and cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV)...

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease that can present with a variety of cutaneous symptoms. Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is a subtype characterized by flushing (transient erythema), persistent central facial erythema (background erythema), and telangiectasias. The severity of individual symptoms differs in each patient, which can complicate the selection of an appropriate treatment strategy. Evaluation of these specific symptoms has been greatly improved by the routine use of diagnostic tools such as (video) dermatoscopy...

A dermatoscope is an important tool in a dermatologist's armamentarium as it can eliminate the need for a biopsy in a wide array of conditions. Porokeratosis was described by Mibelli and Respighi in 1893, as a disorder of keratinization which on the basis of distribution patterns was described as five clinical variants that portrayed a coronoid lamella on histopathology. We describe a case of asymptomatic, long-standing palmar and plantar pits, which on dermatoscopy showed features suggestive of porokeratosis, which was later reconfirmed by histopathologic sections...

BACKGROUND: Nail disorders can arise at any age. About half of all nail disorders are of infectious origin, 15% are due to inflammatory or metabolic conditions, and 5% are due to malignancies and pigment disturbances. The differential diagnosis of nail disorders is often an area of uncertainty. METHODS: This review is based on publications and guidelines retrieved by a selective search in PubMed, including Cochrane reviews, meta-analyses, and AWMF guidelines. RESULTS: Nail disorders are a common reason for derma - tologic consultation...

BACKGROUND: Considering the increasing incidence of skin cancers in patients after renal transplantation, evaluation of skin condition in dialysis patients, from whom kidney transplant recipients are recruited, appears to be very important. Particular importance is attached to the identification of such dialysis patients in the population who require dermatologic care before qualifying for transplantation. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of skin diseases in the dialysis patient population...

Dear Editor, Apocrine hidradenoma is a rare benign adnexal tumor related to the more common poroma, as they both originate from sweat glands. Hidradenoma usually has an eccrine differentiation, but an apocrine differentiation is possible. Due to its rarity and non-specific clinical appearance it is difficult to differentiate it from other malignant cutaneous lesions. In this challenging task, dermatoscopy could be particularly helpful to better describe, recognize, and differentiate these lesions. Unfortunately, the literature offers only few dermatoscopic descriptions of this rare cutaneous neoplasm...

Cutaneous melanoma may in some instances be confused with seborrheic keratosis, which is a very common neoplasia, more often mistaken for actinic keratosis and verruca vulgaris. Melanoma may clinically resemble seborrheic keratosis and should be considered as its possible clinical simulator. We report a case of melanoma with dermatoscopic characteristics of seborrheic keratosis and emphasize the importance of the dermatoscopy algorithm in differentiating between a melanocytic and a non-melanocytic lesion, of the excisional biopsy for the establishment of the diagnosis of cutaneous tumors, and of the histopathologic examination in all surgically removed samples...

A 52-year-old White man presented with a dozen small, well-restricted, punctiform, asymptomatic, blue-gray macules on the left shoulder. A few months earlier, he had been treated with oral acyclovir for herpes zoster (HZ) affecting the left C7-C8 dermatomes. All the blue macules appeared over a short period of time and then remained stable. The patient had not experienced any previous trauma or had tattooing in this anatomical region. The clinical diagnosis suggested blue nevi. Dermatoscopy revealed small, well-limited, dark-blue, compact, homogeneous areas evoking dermal blue nevi...

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum is a rare congenital inherited elastolytic disorder that has sometimes been observed in association with transepidermal elimination of altered and calcified elastic fibers resulting in elastosis perforans serpiginosa-like changes. In this case, histopathology is usually performed to rule out other conditions. The case of a 38-year-old woman with two slowly enlarging asymptomatic plaques occurring on the neck and surrounded by coalescing yellowish papules with a typical cobblestone appearance, evaluated by polarized light dermatoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy with histopathologic correlations, is described...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer worldwide. Surgical excision is considered to be the primary therapeutic modality wherever possible. For inoperable cases, 5% imiquimod seems to be a good alternative. We present two cases of nodular pigmented BCCs on the face in elderly women successfully treated with 5% imiquimod cream application resulting in complete clinical clearance of lesion as well as on histology and dermatoscopy. There was no recurrence of the lesion on 2 years follow-up for the first and 1...

Pigmentary nail changes may have a variety of causes, e. g., chronic inflammation, and occur more often in patients of African descent compared to Caucasians. Subungual malignant melanoma is the most important differential diagnosis and must be ruled out in any case. Dermatoscopy might be helpful. If no biopsy is taken, clinical follow-ups are necessary at short intervals. In case of chronic paronychia, optimization of occupational skin protection measures may contribute to the healing process.

The face has not been considered a common site of fixed drug eruption, and the authors lack dermatoscopic studies of this condition on the subject. The authors sought to characterize clinical and dermatoscopic features of 8 cases of an eruptive facial postinflammatory lentigo. The authors conducted a retrospective review of 8 cases with similar clinical and dermatoscopic findings seen from 2 medical centers in 2 countries during 2010-2014. A total of 8 patients (2 males and 6 females) with ages that ranged from 34 to 62 years (mean: 48) presented an abrupt onset of a single facial brown-pink macule, generally asymmetrical, with an average size of 1...
