Dermoscopic images of pigmented lesions have distinct features on the sole where skin ridges and furrows exist. Pigmentation of benign nevus usually locates on the skin furrow, while the malignant melanoma is pigmented on the skin ridge. Correspondence between dermoscopy and pathology in the pigmented lesions on soles have been studied based on conventional vertical pathological images. However, for the full understanding of the correspondence, observation of horizontal histological images would...

Diffuse plane xanthoma (DPX) typically presents as poorly demarcated yellowish-orange plaques on the face and trunk in normolipaemic patients. DPX is also observed in regressed tumour lesions of mycosis fungoides (MF).1-3 However, the pathogenesis of DPX associated with MF remains unclear. A case of folliculotropic MF, whose skin tumours were gradually replaced by DPX after treatment with oral etoposide and prednisolone, is presented.

BACKGROUND Choroidal malignant melanoma is the most common primary malignant tumor of the eye in adults. Prognosis after recurrence of this disease has been dismal because of the absence of an effective therapy. However, resection of recurrent foci and a subsequent treatment with immune-checkpoint inhibitor may improve the prognosis after recurrence of this disease. This study presents a case of late-onset liver metastases of choroidal malignant melanoma, successfully treated with hepatectomy an...

Dermoscopy is a convenient tool to diagnose melanocytic lesions, especially nevus and melanoma. Various pigmented structures, including pigment network, dots and globules, and streaks, are observed in dermoscopy. Usually, 2D vertical images are used to explain the correlation of dermoscopy and histopathology. However, because the image of dermoscopy is horizontal, it is difficult for the horizontal view of dermoscopy to refer to the vertical view of histopathology. In our study, we digitally rec...
