Homogenous blue pattern
|Description||This chapter describes the histopathological correlation of homogenous blue patternThis glossary term has not yet been described. as seen in 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.|

Homogenous blue patternThis glossary term has not yet been described. (structureless blue) is characterized by the presence of blue color with the absence of other dermoscopic structuresThis glossary term has not yet been described. throughout the entire lesion (Kittler et al., 2016a). Histologically, it corresponds to densely pigmented melanocytes or melanophages in the dermis. Dermoscopic differential diagnosisis the identification of the nature and cause of a certain phenomenon. Diagnosis is used in many different disciplines with variations in the use of logic, analytics, and experience to determine "cause and effect". In systems engineering and computer science, it is typically used to determine the causes of symptoms, mitigations, and solutions is broad and includes blue neviThis glossary term has not yet been described., combined nevi, areas of extensive regressionThis glossary term has not yet been described., pigmented nodular melanomaThis glossary term has not yet been described., primary or metastatic melanomaThis glossary term has not yet been described., BCCAbbreviation for Basal Cell Carcinoma and radiation tattoos (Scope et al., 2006; Woltsche et al., 2017).
