What's already known about this topic?

  • Dermoscopy is useful in the pre-operative diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC).
  • Management of BCC depends mainly on the histopathological subtype, but is also influenced by the presence of pigmentation, as pigmented BCC is known to respond poorly to certain treatment modalities.

What does this study add?

  • Dermoscopy has the potential to reveal clinically undetectable pigmentation in BCC, providing additional information that is potentially useful for tumour management.
