Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Distinguish dermoscopic patterns of non-scarring and scarring alopecia
  • Identify diseases associated with dermoscopy patterns
  • Utilize dermoscopy in daily evaluation of hair disorders

Dermoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that allows the recognition of morphologic structures not visible to the naked eye. Scalp dermoscopy is very useful for evaluation of patients with hair and scalp disorders. In particular it allows fast diagnosis of hair shaft disorders, immediate differentiation between cicatricial and non cicatricial alopecia, diagnosis and short term prognosis of alopecia areata, and differential diagnosis between telogen effluvium and androgenetic alopecia. This session will illustrate the dermoscopic patterns of the scalp and the specific findings in different hair disorders. The goal is to provide attendees with practical training that can be immediately utilized in daily patient care.
