Download pdf


Dear readers,

welcome to the 13th issue of the IDS newsletter!

In this issue I would like to give you some updates about the Society and the dermoscopy world.

During the last IDS congress in Vienna, a consensus meeting on terminology took place the first day of the conference. This meeting was open to all participants, with about 300 dermoscopists discussing about metaphoric versus descriptive terminology.

The main results of this consensus are reported below. As many of you probably already know, the next conference of the IDS will be host in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece, in June 2018. Please take a look at the official logo of the event in the next page. Registration will open soon, in January 2016 at the official web site

We continue with the educational purposes of this space, the case of the newsletter will focus on a Fibroepithelioma of Pinkus. Take a look at these beautiful images from the consultation forum.

And because images and image databases are crucial in our lives, I would like to remind you that we all have now a very exciting opportunity. On the website of the IDS you can download for free Dermosun, a very smart and easy to use database for images.

Hope to see you soon in one of the next meetings – With all my best regards

Elvira Moscarella
