Abstract

MAIA, Marcus; LELLIS, Rute Facchini  and  MARTA, Alessandra Cristine. Ex vivo dermoscopy: synchronic evaluation between dermatologist and dermatopathologist of melanocytic lesions. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.5, pp. 553-555. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000500021.

Clinicopathologic correlation is essential for diagnostic accuracy. Even though interdependent, dermatology and dermatopathology have become apart. In order to minimize this distance, we have performed ex vivo dermoscopic examinations. We performed comparative in vivo and ex vivo dermoscopy study followed by histopathological mapping. We observed that ex vivo dermoscopy identified the same structures visualized by the in vivo one, but with significant change of colors.

Keywords : Dermoscopy; Melanoma; Pathology.
