From dermoscopy

This is the page on the glossary term Dermoscopy which is relevant on DERMOSCOPY. See also the list of terms.


The examination of skin [lesions] with a 'dermatoscope'. This traditionally consists of a magnifier (typically x10), a non-polarised light source, a transparent plate and a liquid medium between the instrument and the skin, and allows inspection of skin lesions unobstructed by skin surface reflections. Modern dermatoscopes dispense with the use of liquid medium and instead use polarised light to cancel out skin surface reflections.

Video "Dermoscopy criteria with histopathological correlation"This lecture provides a solid foundation regarding the terminology as well as the correlation of dermoscopy criteria with dermatopahtology.
Video "Face"This lecture will focus on methods to help identify early melanomas on facial skin. It will discuss the structure seen in facial melanoma and how they differ from those structures seen in lentigo, SK and AK.
Video "Intradermal nevi"This lecture will highlight the features seen in intradermal nevi. Methods to help differentiate IDN from BCC and melanoma will also be discussed.
Video "Introduction to the new 2 step algorithm"The top-down revised 2-step algorithm will be presented. This algorithm provides the foundation on which this course and much of our dermoscopic knowledge is built upon. We will highlight the importance of classifying lesions into those that are organized vs disorganized.
Video "Melanoma"This lecture will discuss in detail the dermoscopic structures associated with melanoma. We will also underscore the ways to identify melanomas mimicking seborrheic keratosis.
Video "Mucosa"This module covers the dermoscopy criteria for mucosal lesions.
Video "Nail dermoscopy"This video covers the dermoscopy of the nail apparatus covering fungus, subungual hemorrhage, pigmented grey bands, ungual lentigo, nevus of the nail matrix and melanoma of the nail matrix.
Video "Nevus patterns"This lecture will discuss the dermoscopic features seen in both acquired and congenital nevi (excluding IDN). The importance of context will be highlighted for each of the benign pattern discussed.
Video "Seborrheic keratoses (including solar lentigo, ink spot lentigo)"This lecture describes the dermoscopy criteria for seborrheic keratoses, solar lentigines and ink spot lentigos among others.
Video "Volar lesions"This module covers the dermoscopy criteria of lesions on palms and soles including the most important differential diagnosis.
