Dermoscopy to the rescue as a diagnostic option

With dermoscopy emerging as a standard diagnostic tool, let’s go over some cases where dermoscopy helps to clinch the diagnosis, and helps to avoid biopsy. So, today we will discuss dermoscopic features of common dermatological conditions which are uncommonly seen, under the dermoscope.

Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis  - Thinking Beyond Drugs

A 17 year-old female presented with a two-week history of progressive development of painful, dusky rash which gradually became fluid-filled. As we explored further, an underlying disease was revealed which mimics Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, and was much more grave then was thought.

Assessment of the epicardial fat thickness as an emerging cardiovascular risk factor in psoriasis patients

This is the first study to evaluate the potential association between psoriasis and epicardial fat thickness in Indian population.

Demystifying the vascular conundrum

 

Vascular tumours have always posed a diagnostic challenge, as many appear analogous to the naked eye. Clinical suspicion of raised erythematous or hyperpigmented vascular swellings presenting to the Dermatology OPD turned out to be different from what they appeared to be on dermoscopy, revealing certain characteristics. Dermoscopy findings were later confirmed on histopathological examination of the specimen.

 

Dr Maryam Motiwala, Junior Resident-2

Much more than what they appear - The tumour maze continues….

 

Various skin tumours present to us in our day to day clinical practice. Histopathological examination of these is essential for their correct identification and management. We present to you some rare skin tumours ranging from benign to malignant that came to our OPD posing a challenge in clinical diagnosis, and how histopathology of each gave us a surprising result.

 

Dr Richa Sharma, Junior Resident-2
