IDS Newsletter #8: December 2012

Download pdf


Dear readers,

2012 was a year full of events for the dermoscopy community. The IDS congress in Brisbane last May was an outstanding scientific event and a big occasion for sharing knowledge and discuss projects. Two official meetings took place during the AAD congress in San Diego and the EADV congress in Prague last months, with a great participation of physicians interested in dermoscopy.

In the meanwhile IDS is growing year by year. The IDS members are now more than 6600. And the website of the society is the main source of information and the main way of communication and active participation among members.

In this light, I’d like to invite you to visit the website, where you will find information about the upcoming events and a valuable source of education, including podcasts and tutorials. Moreover, don’t forget to read about ongoing studies, where all the IDS members are invited to actively participate.

In this edition of the newsletter we will continue with our educational purposes and we will focus on dermoscopy of melanocytic lesions with features of regression. You will find a brief review of the current literature and the case of the newsletter focusing on this topic. I’d like also to highlight new articles from the official journal of the society, Dermatology Practicle and Conceptual.

Finally, I’d like to remind you the next Joint meeting of the International Dermoscopy Society, the International Society for Digital Imaging of the Skin, and the International Confocal Working Group during the upcoming AAD congress in Miami: March 1, 2013 – Time: 5:30 – 9:30 PM

Looking forward to seeing you soon in Miami

With all my best regards

Elvira Moscarella
