Figure 2: Dermoscopic features from lesions of keratosis pilaris: (a) from the thigh revealing faint reddish-light brown background with scattered vascular ectasias, twisted hairs forming loops (white arrow) and irregular coils (black arrow), and presence of vellus hairs (blue arrows); and (b) from the outer arm showing scattered vellus hairs (blue arrow), perifollicular papular erythema (yellow arrow), hairs emerging in groups of 2–3 (black arrow), and focal peri-pilar cast (white arrow). Appreciate the additional presence of scattered pigmented brown-colored globules. (E-scope videodermoscope, polarized mode, ×20)
