White/yellow amorphous structuresThis glossary term has not yet been described.

White to yellow amorphous structures are polylobular whitish to yellowish structures surrounding a central pore. Linear or branched vesselsThis glossary term has not yet been described. ('red corona') are seen at the periphery (Vázquez-López et al., 2004). This is the typical dermoscopic pattern of molluscum contagiosum. Histologically, these white structures correspond to endophytic lobules of hyperplastic squamous epithelium expanding into the dermis, displacing dermal dilated vessels (Morales et al., 2005).
