|Description||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. of lymphangioma circumscriptumThis glossary term has not yet been described.|

Lacunar pattern composed of :
- Clear to tan lacunaeThis glossary term has not yet been described. surrounded by pale septa if there is no inclusion of blood in the lacunae
- Yellow to pink lacunae alternating with dark red or bluish lacunae, if there is inclusion of blood in the lacunae
- Hypopyon-like feature (half and half blIster): a sign observed when the blood inside the lacunae accumulates in the lowest part of the lacunae due to sedimentation, resembling the appearance of the hypopion in the eye

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 cutaneous lymphangioma circumscriptum and haemangiomas?.
