Abstract

The dermoscopic findings of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) were first described more than a decade ago and the list of BCC-related criteria has been several times updated and enriched. Today, the dermatoscope is considered the key tool for the diagnosis of BCC, since it allows its early detection and enables its discrimination from other pigmented and nonpigmented skin tumors. The dermoscopic pattern of BCC results from several combinations of well-known BCC criteria, depending on several factors, including histopathologic subtype, location, gender, age and pigmentary trait. In addition, recent evidence highlighted that dermoscopy is also useful in the management of BCC, since it provides information on the tumor subtype, the presence of pigmentation or ulceration and the response to nonablative treatments.
