Arborizing vesselsanalytic term is branched vessels; Bright red sharply in focus large or thick diameter vessels dividing into smaller vessels; BCC are bright red large-diameter vesselsThis glossary term has not yet been described., with distinct treelike branching into finer capillaries, sharply focused on dermoscopyThe 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.. They are highly suggestive of BCCAbbreviation for Basal Cell Carcinoma, especially nodular BCC, but can also be seen in other tumoral and non-tumoral dermatosis such as hypertrophic scars/keloids, epidermal cysts, actinic keratoses intradermal neviThis glossary term has not yet been described., among othersThis glossary term has not yet been described.This glossary term has not yet been described.

BCC (Micantonio et al., 2011). Unfocused arborizing vessels can also be observed in BCC, but in a lower proportion (Jin et al., 2017). Other vessels found in BCC, especially superficial BCCs, include serpentine vessels which are short thin vessels that do not branch significantly (Micantonio et al., 2011).
