Description This chapter describes the 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. criteriameasure of how well one variable or set of variables predicts an outcome of KeratoacanthomaThis glossary term has not yet been described.

  • Keratin mass: Centrally located, amorphous, yellow-white to light brown areas without any recognizable structure
  • White structureless areas: Absence of any structure; they may be associated with large targetoid hair follicles

The central keratin plug is an architectural criterion for the 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 of keratoacanthomaThis glossary term has not yet been described. also on the histopathological analysis and may be typically surrounded by elongated and sometimes thick telangiectasias.

Vascular architecture of Keratoacanthoma

  • Hairpin vesselsThis glossary term has not yet been described.: Vascular Loops frequently twisted and bending, usually surrounded by whitish halo
  • Linear-irregular vessels: Serpentine or branched Serpentine; irregularly shaped, sized and distributed red structures
  • Glomerular (coiled) vessels: Larger than dotted vesselstiny pinpoint vessels with convoluted morphologyThis glossary term has not yet been described. and often distributed in clusters
