Abstract

Dermoscopy is a noninvasive technique that increases diagnostic accuracy of several skin lesions. Being painless, dermoscopy is particularly useful in children, sparing them from unnecessary biopsies and treatments. In part II of this article, we highlight the importance of dermoscopy for the diagnosis and follow-up of infectious and inflammatory skin disorders in pediatric patients.
