|Description||This chapter covers lesions of vascular origin as seen by 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.|

While some vascular lesions are easily diagnosed clinically and dermoscopically, other vascular lesions can be challenging as many of them share similar dermoscopic features. This chapter reviews all vascular lesions for which dermoscopic features were previously described.
