Dermoscopy (or ‘dermatoscopy’ as some consider a better term), is a noninvasive method that allows the in vivo evaluation of colors and microstructures of the epidermis, the dermoepidermal junction, and the papillary dermis; structures invisible to the naked eye. The introduction of dermoscopy, has opened a new dimension in dermatologic diagnosis. Its journey from utility in diagnosis of melanoma has traversed many miles and today it is being used for the diagnosis of myriad of skin conditions.
However, the identification of specific diagnostic patterns related to the distribution of colors and structures for dermoscopic diagnosis needs clarity of concepts of dermoscopy and experience in using it, before one reaches a level of confidence to employ it in his/her regular clinical practice.
The trend of Dermoscopy is swiftly catching up in Indian Dermatology fraternity. To aid the rookie as well as veteran ‘dermoscopists’, the DERMOSCOPY CONCLAVE, a one day CME-cum-HANDS ON WORKSHOP, is being organized on 21 June 2015 (Sunday) in New Delhi at hotel Holiday Inn, Mayur Vihar.
