Abstract

Background Little is known about the dermoscopic features of scalp tumours. Objective To determine the dermoscopic features of scalp tumours. Methods Retrospective analysis of dermoscopic images of histopathologically diagnosed scalp tumours from International Dermoscopy Society members. Results A total of 323 tumours of the scalp from 315 patients (mean age: 52 years; range 3-88 years) were analysed. Scalp nevi were significantly associated with young age (65 years and sun damage. Atypical network and regression were predictive for thin (1 mm) melanomas, whereas advanced melanomas (tumour thickness > 1 mm) revealed blue white veil, unspecific patterns and irregular black blotches or dots. Conclusions The data collected provide a new knowledge regarding the clinical and dermoscopy features of pigmented scalp tumours.
