Abstract

In addition to its traditional use for the evaluation of skin tumors, dermoscopy continuously gains appreciation in other fields of dermatology. The patterns of several inflammatory and infectious skin diseases have already been described, and dermoscopy has been shown to improve the clinical diagnostic performance in the daily practice. The increasing use of dermoscopy was significantly enhanced by the development of the new generation hand-held dermatoscopes that can be easily placed in every dermatologist's pocket and do not require the use of immersion fluid. In this article, we provide an up-to-date summary of data on dermoscopy in general dermatology. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
