In this 2nd issue of the IDS Newletter we will focus on dermoscopy of amelanotic melanoma. This group of melanomas still represents a challenge for every clinician given the broad spectrum of possible differential diagnoses.

In this context we like to make you aware of the recent publication by Dr. Scott W. Menzies, who conducted a study via the IDS investigating the value of dermoscopy in the diagnosis of amelanotic and hypomelanotic melanomas (ref. Arch Dermatol 2008; 144:1120-7).

Please note that the IDS Newletter aims to provide space for all IDS members to send their own cases or to express their opinion about the IDS and dermoscopy in general.

Finally, we are excited to announce the 2nd World Congress of the IDS to be held in Barcelona, Spain, on November 12-14, 2009. Have a look at the final program:

We look forward seeing you in Barcelona!
