“…These patterns were usually combined with additional (one to two) vascular features. These findings reinforce the impression that MCC should be considered as a dermoscopic differential diagnosis of amelanotic presentations of melanoma including desmoplastic melanoma [10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19]. …”

“…In only one of such nine cases, the polymorphous vascular pattern was due to the combination of arborizing, hairpin, glomerular, linear irregular and dotted vessels in the absence of any other dermoscopic feature. Polymorphous vessels are usually detected in amelanotic ⁄ hypomelanotic melanoma 7,12,13 and in squamous cell carcinoma 7,14 and are correlated with angiogenesis of these tumours.…”

“…AMs can also appear as erythematous scaly eczema-like patches, nonhealing ulcers or hyperkeratotic warts, the latter being misdiagnosed for tinea or onychomycosis. The correct diagnosis of AMs depends critically on vascular patterns, which are visible only using dermoscopy [1][2][3][4][5]. Microscopically, they are often classified as nodular melanomas, with a high Breslow thickness and significant mitotic activity, and it has been suggested that this rapidly growing melanoma subtype [6] may have an intrinsically more aggressive biological behavior in comparison with conventional pigmented melanomas [7].…”
