Dermoscopy, a non-invasive diagnostic tool, has been proven to improve the diagnostic accuracy of vascular tumors since it can aid in identifying vascular structures as well as morphology of vessels. Tumor depth and precise vascular structures can also be evaluated through dermoscopy.

Dermoscopy increases the diagnostic accuracy of clinical visual inspection by 5% to 30%. This has led to a reduction of unnecessary excision of benign skin lesions and the earlier diagnosis of malignant skin lesions.
Objectives: To compare the concordance agreement of the clinical versus histopathologic diagnosis to the concordance agreement of the dermoscopic versus histopathologic diagnosis of pigmented lesions.
