Figure 3: (a) Dermoscopy of pigmentary demarcation lines shows accentuated pseudoreticular pigment network (black arrows). Brown pigment globules are seen arranged around follicular openings (blue arrow) and in irregular diffuse pattern (black circle). (b) Dermoscopy of melasma shows brownish background with pigment globules arranged in reticular pattern (yellow stars). Note the brownish background color. (c) Dermoscopy of melasma reveals reticular netwrok (yellow circles) and brown globules (black arrow) in reticulo-globular pattern. Note the brownish background color. (d) Dermoscopy of melasma reveals brown pigment globules concentrated in perifollicular areas (yellow arrows) with sparing of follicles (black arrows). Note the “out of focus” linear vessels (green arrows) suggestive of vascular element in the etiology of melasma. (e) Dermoscopy of steroid damaged face shows “in focus” vessels (arrows) suggestive of atrophic of skin by the steroid application. (f) Dermoscopy of exogenous ochronosis demonstrates grayish-brown dark structures in curvilinear and “worm like” appearance (yellow arrows), white scales (red arrows) with telangiectasia (black arrows)
