Hair loss

Antonella Tosti, Bruna Duque Estrada

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Nowadays, traveling-associated dermatoses are more frequently seen by physicians that may not be very familiar to them.(12) In this scenario, dermoscopy can facilitate the early diagnosis of tungiasis, thus leading to the correct treatment that consists of complete surgical excision of the lesion (Figures 3.25 and 3.26). Mechanical removal, curettage, and cryotherapy may also be considered.
