  • Visual inspection and dermoscopy, alone or in combination, for diagnosing keratinocyte skin cancers in adults. [Review]
  • CDCochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 Dec 03; 12:CD011901
  • Dinnes J, Deeks JJ, … Cochrane Skin Cancer Diagnostic Test Accuracy Group
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dermoscopy may be a valuable tool for the diagnosis of BCC as an adjunct to visual inspection of a suspicious skin lesion following a thorough history-taking including assessment of risk factors for keratinocyte cancer. The evidence primarily comes from secondary-care (referred) populations and populations with pigmented lesions or mixed lesion types. There is no clear evidence supporting the use of currently-available formal algorithms to assist dermoscopy diagnosis.
  • A Deep Learning Approach to Vascular Structure Segmentation in Dermoscopy Colour Images. [Journal Article]
  • BRBiomed Res Int 2018; 2018:5049390
  • Jaworek-Korjakowska J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Vascular structures due to small size and similarity to other local structures create enormous difficulties during the segmentation and assessment process. The use of advanced segmentation methods like deep learning, especially convolutional neural networks, has the potential to improve the accuracy of advanced local structure detection.
  • Carney complex: Two case reports and review of literature. [Journal Article]

  • Carney complex (CNC) is an extremely rare genetic syndrome of pigmented skin lesions, endocrine hyperfunction and myxoma. Given its diverse clinical manifestations, CNC is often misdiagnosed. Recogni...
  • Descriptive dermoscopy terminology in Portuguese language in Brazil: a reproducibility analysis of the 3rd consensus of the International Dermoscopy Society. [Journal Article]
  • ABAn Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec; 93(6):852-858
  • Barcaui CB, Bakos RM, … Maceira JP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study limitations include the small number of participants and limited regional representation (only 2 out of 5 Brazilian regions were represented).The descriptive English terminology proposed at the 3rd Consensus Conference of the International Dermoscopy Society revealed weak reproducibility and the morphology and arrangement of vascular structures presented moderate reproducibility in Brazilian Portuguese. Despite small regional differences, metaphoric terminology in dermoscopy seems to be the most useful and reproducible system to be adopted in Brazilian Portuguese.
