Dermoscopy revealed to be extremely useful in the diagnosis of early melanoma, the most important limitation being its subjectivity in giving a final diagnosis. In order to overcome this problem several algorithms and checklists have been proposed. However, they generallydemonstrated modest level of diagnostic accuracy, unsatisfactory concordance between dermoscopists and/or poor specificity.
