Scarce evidence exists on the dermoscopic pattern of vasculitides. Henoch-Schonlein purpura has been shown to dermoscopically reveal irregularly shaped red patches with blurred borders. Reported findings of urticarial vasculitis are described above.In granuloma faciale, the specific dermoscopic features are dilated follicular openings, perifollicular whitish halo, follicular keratotic plugs and linear branching vesselsThis glossary term has not yet been described.. Clinically, granuloma faciale has to be differentiated from sarcoidosisThis glossary term has not yet been described., discoid lupus erythematosusThis glossary term has not yet been described., lupus vulgarisThis glossary term has not yet been described., lymphoma and basal cell carcinomais the most common skin cancer, and one of the most common cancers in the United States. While BCC has a very low metastatic risk, this tumor can cause significant disfigurement by invading surrounding tissues. The mentioned dermoscopic patterns simplify clinical differential diagnosisThis glossary term has not yet been described.. But the distinction from discoid lupus erythematosus, which exhibits similar findings, remains challenging.
