“…32 Data from the present study suggest that asymmetry is an important indicator of histopathologic atypia in Spitz nevi and that this feature deserves special attention in a setting of dermoscopic-pathologic correlation. …”

“…It can be performed in private practice and for many other indications besides pigmented skin lesions. Finally, since this technique allows for the first time a direct correlation between dermoscopic and histopathologic findings, the clinician will be able to "guide" the pathologist 16 and indicate the precise areas of interest or suspicion.…”

“…Many pathologists have worked on the histopathologic correlation of these structures, 6,8,9,[11][12][13][14][15] but this anatomoclinical correlation has 2 important methodologic limitations 16 : (1) The dermoscopist has only a horizontal overview of the pigmented skin lesion, and the pathologist has only a partial (focal) vertical view of different parts (sections) of the lesion. (2) Neither the dermoscopist nor the pathologist knows in which axis the surgeon removed the lesion and to which part of the dermoscopy image the histopathologic slide corresponds.…”

“…Ganz besonders gilt dies für atypische melanozytäre Tumoren, die nicht selten heterogen strukturiert sind und auf einer Seite einen gutartigen Nävuszellnävus, auf der anderen Seite ein flaches Melanom aufweisen können. Hier ist ein gutes klinisches Bild nicht selten von unschätz-barem Wert [2,3], denn formalinfixiertes Material wird uniform grau-blass und lässt feine Farbunterschiede nicht mehr erkennen. …”
