Abstract

Dermoscopy is a noninvasive, in vivo technique that increases the diagnostic accuracy in both melanocytic and nonmelanocytic skin tumors. In nonpigmented tumors it allows the visualization of vascular structures not visible to the naked eye. Part II of this article discusses clinical applications of dermoscopy in non-pigmented tumoral skin lesions.
