When approaching a pigmented lesion with dermoscopy, the entire architecture of the lesion should be considered. The presence of certain pigment patterns, structural patterns, or border characteristic alone are insufficient to make the most accurate diagnosis. Because pigmented lesions are dynamic and have many variations in their patterns, there can exist no exact defining classifications among each type of pigmented lesion.
