Dermoscopy is a non-invasive, widely used diagnostic tool that aids the diagnosis of skin lesions and is proven to increase the accuracy of melanoma diagnosis.
This book is a practical, self-assessment guide to the diagnosis of skin disorders by dermoscopy.
Beginning with an introduction to the technique, the following sections describe its use for different skin conditions, including pigmentation disorders, infectious diseases, skin tumours, and more. The final sections cover onychoscopy (nails) and trichoscopy (hair and scalp).
Each case is highly illustrated with clinical photographs and diagrams, and includes a summary of the key features of the topic and dermoscopic clinical pearls.
