  • A Muselet and USB dermatoscope: A precise way to mark a site for biopsy. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Dermatol. 2020 Apr 25 [Online ahead of print]Jakhar D, Kaur I
  • Precise marking of the biopsy site is essential for histoapthological evaluation. Naked eye examination, sometimes, does not help in identifying an appropriate lesion for biospy. Dermoscopy enhance surface and subsurface features in a lesion and can thus be helpful in selecting the most appropriate lesion for biopsy. This manuscript describes the use of a muselet to mark a biopsy site under the v…
  • Synchronous Teledermoscopy in Military Treatment Facilities. [Journal Article]
    Mil Med. 2020 Apr 20 [Online ahead of print]Day WG, Shrivastava V, Roman JW
  • Sustained demand for dermatologic care throughout military medicine, in conjunction with increasing dermatologic provider shortages, has led to increase use of teledermatology in military treatment facilities (MTFs). Initially used to aid in the differentiation of suspicious melanocytic lesions, dermoscopy has found increasing clinical utility in an expanding realm of general dermatologic conditi…
  • Wide area digital dermoscopy applied to basal cell carcinoma. [Case Reports]
    An Bras Dermatol. 2020 May - Jun; 95(3):379-382.Dellatorre G, Gadens GA
  • In situations in when a dermoscopic record of a large lesion is desirable, the resulting images are usually restricted to a small field of view due to the limited diameter of dermatoscope lenses. This limitation often produces several photographs separately, thus losing the possibility of a single-image global evaluation. In these case reports, we show examples of a recently published image monta…
  • Enhanced visualization of blood and pigment in multispectral skin dermoscopy. [Journal Article]
    Skin Res Technol. 2020 Mar 29 [Online ahead of print]Janssen L, Mylle S, … Garmyn M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Skin parameter maps based on multispectral images can give better insight in the inner structures of lesions, especially in lesions with characteristic blood vessels such as Bowen's disease and basal cell carcinoma. Skin parameter maps can be used complementary to regular dermoscopy and could potentially facilitate diagnosing skin lesions.
  • The Importance of Dermoscopy in Early Recognition of Melanoma in Situ. [Case Reports]
    Curr Health Sci J. 2019 Oct-Dec; 45(4):366-371.Ianosi SL, Calbureanu-Popescu MX, … Neagoe CD
  • Early recognition of melanoma in situ (MIS) is an ongoing challenge in dermatology. It rarely arises 'de novo', most frequently resulting due to the transformation of an atypical nevus. The diagnostic criteria for MIS are diverse dermoscopy being the most used and it has a sensitivity of 83% and a specificity of 69% in detecting melanomas. The main objective of our study was to establish the sens…
  • Impact and associates of digital pitting in patients with systemic sclerosis: a pilot study. [Journal Article]
    Scand J Rheumatol. 2020 May; 49(3):239-243.Nolan E, Manning J, … Herrick AL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Digital pitting is painful and impacts on hand function. Capillaroscopy findings provide further support for an association between pitting and severity of digital vascular change. Larger, more comprehensive studies are required to examine the pathophysiology of pitting and to pave the way to therapeutic intervention, ideally including preventive strategies.
  • Update on Dermoscopy and Infectious Skin Diseases. [Journal Article]
    Dermatol Pract Concept. 2020; 10(1):e2020003.Piccolo V
  • Nowadays, dermoscopy is a global worldwide diffuse diagnostic tool supporting clinicians in their daily hard task of correct orientation among dermatological diseases. Born to be an instrument for early diagnosis of skin cancer, the dermatoscope is now considered the dermatologist's stethoscope, as it can be routinely used to support diagnosis in general dermatology, so spreading its utility in c…
  • An alternative diagnostic method of eruptive vellus hair cysts: Report of a familial case with pruritus. [Journal Article]
    Dermatol Ther. 2020 01; 33(1):e13147.Yaremkevych R, Andrashko Y, … Jafferany M
  • Eruptive vellus hair cysts (EVHC) represent a developmental abnormality of vellus hair follicles. Up till now more than 150 cases of EVHC have been published in the literature, but it appears to be more common than recognized. The diagnostic hallmark is the presence of vellus hair shafts within the cystic space. Firstly to evaluate the potential benefit of new diagnostic method of EVHC using a de…
  • Value of Dermoscopy in a Population-Based Screening Sample by Dermatologists. [Journal Article]
    Dermatol Pract Concept. 2019 Jul; 9(3):200-206.Hoorens I, Vossaert K, … Brochez L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dermoscopy significantly improved diagnostic accuracy, the sensitivity of skin cancer detection, and the confidence in diagnosis especially for seborrheic keratosis, Bowen disease, and melanoma. However, this finding was not reflected in a significant reduction in the number needed to excise in this sample.
  • Correlation of Trichoscopic Findings in Androgenetic Alopecia and the Disease Severity. [Journal Article]
    Int J Trichology. 2019 May-Jun; 11(3):118-122.Ummiti A, Priya PS, … Kumar CS
  • CONCLUSIONS: As trichoscopy can reveal early variations in hair follicle diameter long before hair loss becomes clinically visible and has the advantage of examining larger areas in a relatively short duration makes it a practical choice for clinic set up. It adds new easily recognizable images for visual teledermatology. Besides, the easy documentation allows the doctor and patient to view the video graphics images simultaneously and helps in evaluating a therapeutic response by comparing it with pre-treatment images.
  • Nailfold capillaroscopy with USB dermatoscope: A cross-sectional study in healthy adults. [Journal Article]
    Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol. 2020 Jan-Feb; 86(1):33-38.Jakhar D, Grover C, Singal A
  • CONCLUSIONS: NFC with a USB dermatoscope is a useful technique for studying the PNF capillaries. The normal PNF capillary density in healthy Indian adults was 7.63 ± 1.12 capillary/mm. Capillary alterations such as tortuosity, meandering capillaries and microhemorrhages are seen in a significant number of healthy individuals.
  • Evaluation of a Handheld Dermatoscope in Clinical Diagnosis of Primary Cicatricial Alopecias. [Journal Article]
    Dermatol Ther (Heidelb). 2019 Sep; 9(3):525-535.Karadag Köse Ö, Güleç AT
  • CONCLUSIONS: We suggest that a polarized-light handheld dermatoscope is useful for revealing several typical trichoscopic features of primary cicatricial alopecias that guide clinical diagnosis. As a novel observation, our data indicate that absence of vellus hairs is not an identifying feature for frontal fibrosing alopecia.
  • Dermoscopy: A Review of the Structures That Facilitate Melanoma Detection. [Review]
    J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2019 Jun 01; 119(6):380-390.Marghoob NG, Liopyris K, Jaimes N
  • Melanoma is currently the fifth most common cancer in the United States, resulting in more than 9000 deaths each year. Despite numerous improvements in the management of advanced melanoma, the cornerstone to ensuring a cure remains early detection. Both patient and physician awareness regarding the signs and symptoms of early melanoma remain paramount. As a result, much effort has been and contin…
  • Dermoscopy use in UK primary care: a survey of GPs with a special interest in dermatology. [Journal Article]
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol. 2019 Sep; 33(9):1706-1712.Jones OT, Jurascheck LC, … Walter FM
  • CONCLUSIONS: UK GPs with a special interest in dermatology are routinely using dermoscopy in the primary care setting. More research is needed to establish optimal approaches to training and updating GP dermoscopy skills. When dermoscopy has been shown to be safe, effective, acceptable and cost-effective in this setting, more GPs may also be able to gain and maintain the skills to implement dermoscopy into routine primary care. Technological advances, including incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) and algorithms to guide GPs, could also contribute to widening use of dermoscopy among GPs.
