Figure 7: Cutaneous Larva Migrans (CLM) involving the dorsum of one foot in an adult Indian man: (a) Clinical image showing the burrows as raised, skin-to-tan- coloured discreet-to-coalescing linear, and curvilinear lesions (white arrows) with focal erythema and mild scaling. (b) Dermoscopy of the CLM lesions showing reddish-brown streaky thick lines (linear & curvilinear) and structureless areas in a segmental pattern (white arrows & arc) representing burrows with larva, and multiple red dotted-to-curved vessels (yellow crosses) scattered around these structures, i.e., remnants in the empty burrows. Additionally note the presence of focally present bizarre pigmented structures (light blue arrows) typical of darker skin types. [Escope videodermoscope, polarized, non-contact, 80×]
