Missing the diagnosis of a melanoma is the worst dermatologist nightmare, especially when melanomas have a non-alarming clinical appearance and imitate a completely benign lesion. The use of dermoscopy has provided an effective tool to facilitate the differential diagnosis and to increasingly allow an early diagnosis of melanoma. The aim of this article was to summarize the most recent and important clinical and dermoscopic pearls to recognize melanoma at the earliest stages of its development.


KEY WORDS: Melanoma - Dermoscopy - Diagnosis
