Descriptive terminologyTerminology using descriptive terms Metaphoric terminologyThe system of terms belonging or peculiar to a science, art or specialized subject / nomenclature. Significance
lines reticularMetaphoric term: pigment network melanocytic lesions dermatofibroma solar lentigo pigment networkGrid-like pattern consisting of interconnecting pigmented lines surrounding hypopigmented holes. melanocyticThis glossary term has not yet been described. lesions dermatofibromaDermatofibromas are hard solitary slow-growing papules (rounded bumps) that may appear in a variety of colours, usually brownish to tan; they are often elevated or pedunculated. A dermatofibroma is associated with the dimple sign; by applying lateral pressure, there is a central depression of the dermatofibroma. solar lentigoThis glossary term has not yet been described.
