原始语种摘要: The introduction of dermoscopy has improved the accuracy of diagnosis of melanoma. However, early stage melanoma can be difficult to diagnose. Eighty-nine cases of thin melanoma with a Breslow thickness ≤1 mm located on the lower limb and diagnosed between 2008 and 2016 were assessed using 4 dermoscopic algorithms: (i) modified pattern analysis; (ii) ABCD rule of dermoscopy; (iii) 7-point checklist; and (iv) Menzies’ method. Two groups of early stage melanomas of the legs were identified: “difficult to diagnose melanomas” (DDM) and “non-difficult to diagnose melanomas” (NDDM). In our series the dermoscopic features of DDM were difficult to differentiate from melanocytic naevi, and the reticular pattern was the most frequently observed. “Depigmentation” was the only specific criterion...
