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… CONTINUE READING
