Abstract

The list of dermoscopic criteria associated with basal cell carcinoma (BCC) have been several times updated and renewed. Up to date, dermoscopy has been shown to increase diagnostic and therapeutic accuracy, since provides valuable information about histopathologic subtype, a more accurate assessment of the true extension of tumor, the presence of pigmentation not visible to the naked eye and the treatment choice for BCC. In the current review, we provide an update of the traditional and latest knowledges on the value of dermatoscopy for the diagnosis and management of BCC.
