Abstract

Dermoscopy improves the diagnostic accuracy in the clinical evaluation of pigmented skin lesions, but it is also useful for the assessment of vascular structures that are not visible to the naked eye. As a consequence, dermoscopy has been employed more and more for the differential diagnosis of nonpigmented skin disorders, including tumors but also inflammatory and infectious diseases. This article provides a review of the dermoscopic features seen in various nonpigmented tumoral and nontumoral skin lesions as well as the dermoscopic criteria used for monitoring skin reactions to various treatments.
