Figure 1:(a) Dermoscopy of vitiligo shows white structureless areas as “white glow” (yellow stars), perilesional pigmentation (yellow arrows), and residual pigmentation (black arrow) within white area. Note the whitish color in the background. (b) Dermoscopy of idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis show white structureless area (black stars) with pseudopod like extensions (red arrows) at periphery. Perilesional (yellow arrows) and perifollicular (blue arrows) pigmentation is well appreciated. Note the brownish hue at the background. (c) Dermoscopy of lichen sclerosus et atrophicus shows follicular plugs (comedo-like openings) (yellow arrows), telangiectasia (black arrows), white areas (black stars) and brown pigmentation (red arrows). Note the pinkish area in the centre (red star) and pinkish-white color in the background. (d) Dermoscopy of genital lichen sclerosus et atrophicus shows peppering of brown (black arrows) and blue-gray dots (yellow circles) with linear and branching telangiectasia (yellow arrows). Reflactile white strands (chrysalis strands) are well appreciated (red arrows). Note the pinkish-white color at the background. (e) Dermoscopy of pityriasis alba shows ill defined area with diffuse white scales (black stars) covering entire lesion. Subtle pigment network is well appreciated. Note the brownish-white color in the background
