Core Messages: When visiting a patient for the fi rst time, it is necessary to take enough time in order to include a comprehensive clinical evaluation. Therefore, a checklist of assessment items is useful to get a comprehensive individual image of the patient and his/her disease. The VETF scoring system combines analysis of extent, stage of disease (staging), and disease progression (spreading). Wood's lamp is useful for a combined assessment of staging and spreading in the same selected area. Subjective items,which impact the quality of life are also important to take into account for management purposes.
