Dermoscopy is a very useful technique devised for an earlier diagnosis of skin melanoma with a clinicpathological correlation. Later it was found to be beneficial for the diagnosis of many other pigmented skin lesions, such as seborrheic keratosis, pigmented basal cell carcinoma, hemangioma, blue nevus, atypical nevus, and mole, which can often clinically simulate melanoma. Of late, its use in general clinical dermatology is growing with the recognition of new and specific patterns in conditions such as hair disorders, inflammatory disorders, and infections/infestation. It is still in the evolving phase and many new signs are described presently. Eponyms are used almost daily in dermatology practice. The eponyms in dermoscopy, trichoscopy, and onychoscopy are based on the imaginative capability of the authors and they have been very much successful in describing them. It becomes easier to memorize and identify the various appearances for early diagnosis and management. In this article we attempt to highlight the various dermoscopic signs described in dermatology.
