Dermatoscopy is generally regarded as a tool for skin cancer screening. Yet, lets analyse what is the ratio of such patients in our everyday practice in comparison to the ones with inflammatory skin diseases. Some of the latter are clinically obvious, but some have non-stereotypical presentations that may take us weeks until we realize what we deal with. Fortunately, we are armed with a low-cost and easy to apply device that can make the diagnostic process faster, cheaper and less burdensome for the patient. This lecture would be a revision of dermatoscopic patterns of common inflammatory diseases to unmask the suspects and narrow the list of differentials.
