Cutaneous vascular lesions (VLs) represent a very common reason for dermatologic consultation for patients. In most cases, VLs are benign and self-limiting. However, because they often mimic malignant skin tumors, their correct and prompt identification is very important in daily practice. Dermoscopy may play a key role in achieving that purpose. This article reviews current knowledge of dermoscopic features of the most frequent VLs.

Abstract

Cutaneous vascular lesions (VLs) represent a very common reason for dermatologic consultation for patients. In most cases, VLs are benign and self-limiting. However, because they often mimic malignant skin tumors, their correct and prompt identification is very important in daily practice. Dermoscopy may play a key role in achieving that purpose. This article reviews current knowledge of dermoscopic features of the most frequent VLs.
