Abstract

Evaluation of the three benign lesions discussed here form the basis for dermoscopic evaluation of other pigmented skin lesions. The features of seborrheic keratosis, including the various forms of fissures, comedo-like openings, and milia-like cysts, often allow easy interpretation of seborrheic keratosis; however, similar structures are commonly associated with melanocytic neoplasms, notably congenital nevi. Understanding solar lentigo and its dermoscopy features allows for the appreciation of pigment networks common in lentiginous melanocytic nevi and melanoma. The lichenoid keratosis is the model for lichenoid inflammation elsewhere, notably in halo nevi, regressing melanoma, and other melanocytic neoplasms with significant host inflammatory reactions.
