Background: The clinical and dermoscopic diagnosis of cutaneous melanoma meta-stases may be challenging especially in patients with unknown primary melanoma. Main observations: We observed repetitive dermoscopic patterns of peripheral stel-late telangiectasias in cutaneous melanoma metastases from 3 patients, of whom 2 had an unknown primary melanoma. Conclusions: Stellate telangiectasias surrounding bluish to purple or red nodules with recent onset may represent a clue for cutaneous melanoma metastases.
