Dermoscopy of Keratinocytic Neoplasms

Dermoscopy of Keratinocytic Neoplasms skINsight SECTION EDITOR: JAMES M. GRICHNIK, MD, PhD Subpatterns of Seborrheic Keratoses Editor’s Note: The skINsight section is a forum for the presentation of dermatologic images. The current ef- fort is to foster the recognition of patterns in dermatologic disease processes that may enhance both diagnostic and research capabilities. The initial focus is on dermoscopic images. Theoretically, these patterns reflect the interaction of specific gene defects with local environmental factors. The exercise here is to group lesions with similar dermoscopic patterns—not pathologic criteria. The ultimate benign or malignant behavior is not the focus of this section. HE LESIONS shown are from the left side of the neck of a 64-year-old white man (Figure 1), left midback of a 74-year- old white man (Figure 2), and the left up- T per chest of a 59-year-old white woman (Figure 3) (size bar, 5 mm). All 3 of these lesions re- veal a similar pattern. They have a foggy white to light tan quality with less well-defined white dots (milialike cysts). Dark pigmentation and crisp brown-black circu- lar areas (comedolike openings) are not prominent. The underlying disease process is unknown but it clearly re- sults in a disruption of normal keratinocytic growth http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Dermatology American Medical Association
