Dermoscopic structures in melanocytic neoplasms
Editor: Ralph P. Braun
|Description||This chapter describes the different 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. structuresThis glossary term has not yet been described. seen in melanocyticThis glossary term has not yet been described. neoplasms such as pigment networkGrid-like pattern consisting of interconnecting pigmented lines surrounding hypopigmented holes., dotsDots are small, round structures of less than 0.1 mm in diameter that have a red color when corresponding to blood vessels; however, when due to melanin, their color ranges from black, brown, to blue-gray depending on the depth and concentration of the melanin in the skin (Tyndall effect)., globules streakslines radial (always at periphery) streaks Reed nevus melanoma recurrent nevus etc.|
