ABSTRACT: Pigmented cutaneous invasive SCC is uncommon with few reports in the literature. Four out of five previously reported cases with dermatoscopy had a blue structureless zone. The case we report, like previous cases, had clues to malignancy and in this case these included asymmetry, a blue structureless zone and polymorphic vessels. The presence of surface scale and the presence of white circles may be clues to squamous cell carcinoma. The dermatoscopic finding of white circles as a clue to invasive squamous cell carcinoma needs to be confirmed with the study of more cases.01/2011; 1(1):69-72. DOI:10.5826/dpc.0101a14
Article: Dermatoscopy of a minute melanoma[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We present a case report of a naevoid lentigo maligna (World Health Organisation level 1 melanoma) on the nose of a 46-year-old man. He was under surveillance because of a past history of two melanomas and developed a new lesion. The visible lesion was 1.6 mm in maximum diameter as measured by the scale on the dermatoscope footplate. The dermatoscopic structures present were limited to dots arranged asymmetrically. We believe that the fact that some of these dots were grey provided a useful clue to the diagnosis of melanoma.Australasian Journal of Dermatology 02/2011; 52(1):76-8.
