  • Background: Malignant melanomas mimicking seborrheic keratosis (SK-like MMs) carry the risk of delayed diagnosis and inadequate treatment. The value of dermoscopy to improve the correct detection of these mimickers has not been previously studied. Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of clinically SK-like MMs with and without dermoscopy. Methods: Clinical and dermoscopic images of histopathologically proven SK-like MMs (n = 134) intermingled with other melanomas and benign tumors were… CONTINUE READING
