Dermoscopic Criteria for Diagnosis:test
Dermoscopic analysis of pigmented lesions is based on four algorithms.
Pattern Analysis:
The reticular pattern is the most common global pattern in melanocytic lesions. It is characterized by a pigment network covering most parts of a lesion. The pigment network appears as a grid of line segments (honeycomb-like) in differ shades of black, brown, or gray.
Reticular Pattern Example
<-- Atypical Reticular Pattern
The globular pattern has various sizes (round to oval) that are brown structures that fill these melanocytic lesions.
Globular Pattern Example
<-- Atypical Globular Pattern
The Homogenous pattern is characterized by a diffuse, uniform, structureless color filling most of the lesion. Colors include black, brown, gray, blue, white, or red. A predominantly bluish color is the morphologic hallmark of a blue nevi.
