Abstract

BOMM, Lislaine et al. Biopsy guided by dermoscopy in cutaneous pigmented lesion - Case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2013, vol.88, n.1, pp.125-127. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962013000100020.

It may be clinically difficult to differentiate early-stage melanoma from benign tumors, specially pigmented seborrheic keratosis. Dermoscopy can help; however, the findings are not always conclusive. Therefore, histopathology may be necessary for a correct diagnosis. We describe a melanocytic lesion with dubious clinic and dermoscopic findings. An incisional biopsy of a suspicious area, guided by dermoscopy, was performed to clarify the findings.

Keywords : Biopsy; Dermoscopy; Keratosis, Melanoma; Seborrheic.
