Dermoscopy patterns of nevi associated with melanoma


Kolm, I; French, L; Braun, R P (2010). Dermoscopy patterns of nevi associated with melanoma. Giornale Italiano di Dermatologia e Venereologia, 145(1):99-110.

Abstract

It is well known that dermoscopy improves the diagnostic accuracy of pigmented skin lesions. Many dermoscopic criteria can be found both in nevi and in melanoma. For the correct interpretation of those criteria, formal training and clinical experience in dermoscopy is needed. This paper reviews the global and local dermoscopic features seen both in nevi and melanoma and focuses on the interpretation of those findings in order to differentiate between benign and malignant melanocytic skin tumors.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
