Figure 2: (a) Dermoscopy of flat hypopigmented lesion of leprosy shows focal white areas (black stars), broken hairs and pigtail hairs (black arrows) and subtle pigment network (yellow stars) within the lesion. Note the reduction in the white dots (eccrine and follicular openings) and widened skin cleavage lines. Brownish-white color is well appreciated. (b) Dermoscopy of pityriasis versicolor shows diffuse white scales (black stars) which are more prominent in skin cleavage lines (black arrows) and focal white areas (red arrows). Double edged scales (yellow arrows) are seen due stretching of lesion. Note the subtle pigment network. Brownish-white color in the background is well appreciated. (c) Dermoscopy of nevus depigmentosus shows white structureless areas (black stars) with perifollicular (black arrows) and perieccrine (yellow arrows) pigmentation within white areas which extend like pseudopods (red arrows). Note the uniform brownish pigment network and brownish-white color in the background. (d) Dermoscopy of progressive macular hypomelanosis shows focal white areas (black stars), white scales (black arrows) that are restricted to skin cleavage lines and brownish pigmentation. Note the widened skin lines (yellow arrows) and brownish-white color in the background
