Abstract

A dermoscope is a "stethoscope" for a dermatologist. It is more important to "use" dermoscope than to "learn" it. In the first part of this review, colour and structures of the pigmented lesions on dermoscopy will be elaborated. The important features on dermoscopy to differentiate melanoma from naevus will be discussed. The basic diagnostic approach for pigmented skin lesions will be introduced. It is essential for the readers to continue reading the second part of this review in the next issue in order to get the complete picture about the dermoscopy basics and melanocytic lesions.

皮膚鏡是皮膚科醫生的「聽診器」。「使用」皮膚鏡比「學習」它更為重要。在這篇回顧的第一部份,會闡述色素性病變在皮膚鏡中的顏色和結構。在皮膚鏡下,分辨黑色素瘤及痣的重要特點將被討論。我們亦會介紹色素性皮膚病變的基本診斷方法。讀者若想獲得基本皮膚鏡學和色素性皮膚病變的概覽,就必須繼續閱讀這篇回顧在下一期的第二部份。
