Dermatology Practical & Conceptual is the official journal of the International Dermoscopy Society. It is an international peer-reviewed, PubMed-indexed, Open Access journal that publishes articles covering practical and conceptual aspects in the field of dermatology.

In this video, Editor-in-Chief Giuseppe Argenziano shares his favourite three research articles recently published in the journal, including:

  1. Dermoscopy of inflammatory dermatoses (inflammoscopy): An up-to-date overview
  2. Can dermoscopy be used to predict if melanoma is in situ or invasive?
  3. Total body skin examination practices: A survey study amongst dermatologists at high-risk skin cancer clinics

These articles have helped shape the landscape of skin cancer research in recent months and have the potential to make a huge impact on the day-to-day practice of any doctor seeing skin cancer patients.
