AcralThis chapter describes dermoscopy of lesions on acral sites (palms and soles)
Acrolentiginous MelanomaThis chapter describes the dermoscopy criteria of melanocytic lesions in acral sites.
Correlation of dermoscopic structures of melanocytic neoplasms in special sitesThe microanatomy of the rete ridge pattern of facial, volar, mucosal, and nail lesions differs from that of non-glabrous skin. The pigmented network is usually absent and diverse dermoscopic patterns are observed Herein we will review the dermoscopic structures and its correlates in these special sites.
Correlation of dermoscopic structures on volar skin (palms and soles)This chapter describes the histopathologcal correlation of dermoscopic structures on volar skin
Other special locationsThis chapter describes dermoscopy in other special locations
Special locationsDermoscopy, a vital diagnostic tool in dermatology, is employed for examining skin lesions across various body sites. However, its application in special anatomical locations, such as the face, acral areas (palms and soles), nails, and mucosal membranes, presents unique challenges and requires specific expertise. These areas exhibit distinct anatomical and physiological characteristics that influence the presentation of skin lesions, including those that are cancerous.
