Figure 1: (a) Dermoscopy of psoriasis shows homogeneously arranged red dots with regularity and uniformity on a pinkish background. Inset: Glomerular vessels are seen on close-up view. (b) Dermoscopy of classical lichen planus shows pearly white Wickham striae (black arrows), brown dots (yellow arrows) in the center, and linear vessels (yellow circle) at the periphery. Note the bluish-white background color. (c) Dermoscopy of hypertrophic lichen planus shows pearly Wickham striae (black stars), follicular plugging (black arrows) with red dots, and globules (yellow circles). Note the yellowish follicular plugs coalesce in curvilinear fashion (yellow stars) to cover most of the lesion. Purplish-blue background color is well appreciated. (d) Dermoscopy of prurigo nodularis in excoriated stage shows red globules (black arrows) and hemorrhagic spots in the center, white scales (yellow stars), and brownish striations (black stars) at the periphery of lesion. Note the reddish-brown color in the background. (e) Dermoscopy of prurigo nodularis in hyperkeratotic stage shows pearly white areas in starburst pattern (yellow stars), red dots, globules and hemorrhagic spots (yellow arrows), white scales (black stars), and brownish striations (black arrow) extending peripherally. Note the adherent fabric fiber (white stars) within white area
