With good over 1,500 pictures, drawings, and tables, the e-book has huge scientific correlation with dermoscopic photographs, so readers can relish the further merits of dermoscopy by way of evaluating the scientific morphology obvious with the bare eye with the corresponding dermoscopic morphology; large illustrations from the picture collections of the world over well-known specialists, who've years of expertise refining their concepts; and large schematic drawings to aid readers unmarried out the major constructions and styles to acknowledge within the dermoscopic images.

The moment variation has very important new fabric on such themes as saw variations among polarized and non-polarized dermoscopy, newly well-known constructions and styles, subtle and revised feedback for trend research, dermoscopy of the hair and nails, and the way to combine dermoscopy into common scientific perform. It additionally covers dermoscopically equivocal, fake adverse, and fake confident lesions; discusses extra symptoms for dermoscopy past epidermis melanoma; and info universal checklists of standards and algorithms used to diagnose epidermis lesions.

8)5. 9)7–9,13.  Melanosis differs from fibrosis by the additional presence of a band of melanophages in a thickened papillary dermis9,13. 11).  Other vascular dermoscopic structures include telangiectasia which represent dilated vessels in the papillary dermis and red­blue areas (lacunae) which correspond to dilated vascular spaces in the dermis.  Sometimes milia­like cysts are pigmented, and thus can resemble globules (see Chapter 6b).  Histopathologically, comedo­like structures correspond to the concave, often hyperkeratinized clefts, of the epidermis (see Chapter 6b).

Histopathologically, they represent nests of pigmented epithelial nodules of basal cell carcinoma (see Chapter 6a).  Histopathologically, they correspond to the nests of basal cell carcinoma radiating from a follicular epithelium (see Chapter 6a).  When a network is absent, ovoid nests are highly suggestive of basal cell carcinoma (see Chapter 6a).  They have to be differentiated from multiple blue­gray dots (which correspond to melanophages and melanin dust; see Chapter 6a).  Superficial black network: an additional dermoscopic clue for the diagnosis of pigmented spindle and/or epithelioid cell nevus.

Dermoscopy should not be regarded as simply a magical tool for facilitating the diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions, but it should also be considered as a useful tool for evaluating in vivo gross pathology.  Therefore, combining dermoscopy more closely and frequently with the cutaneous pathology will be of substantial help in refining the definitions and diagnostic criteria of pigmented skin lesions for both dermatologists and dermatopathologists.  Narrow width in dermal papillae results in a narrow pigment network.
