The best known dermoscopic pattern of molluscum contagiosum (MC) consists of crown vessels at the periphery of the lesion with a radial distribution. [] Key Method The dermoscopic images of 258 cytologically or histologically proven MC lesions were assessed by two physicians. The frequency of each dermoscopic feature, and the intraobserver and interobserver agreement of the classification of the white structures were determined.
