Abstract

Dermoscopy today has become and essential tool in dermatology practice. The increasing application of dermoscopy in disorders of pigmentation has made it imperative to create new terminologies and descriptions in pigmentation patterns, especially in skin of color. Only rarely a skin disorder is left without alteration in the normal pigmentation and vascular pattern. In this chapter dermoscopic features of disorders of pigmentation are described under disorders of hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation.
