Squamous cell carcinoma
A 70-year-old man consulted for a keratotic tumour on his scalp.
Dermoscopy revealed an unspecific pattern, with many polymorphous vessels. Polymorphous vessels were the only dermoscopic sign in favor of a malignant tumour. Clinical and dermoscopic features were in favour of squamous cell carcinoma. A biopsy was performed and pathology confirmed this hypothesis.
