Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is characterized by papular, papulonecrotic, and/or nodular skin lesions at different stages of development, predominantly on the trunk and limbs.1,2 We prospectively evaluated 8 patients using dermoscopy and histopathologic correlations. The aim of this pilot study was to define dermoscopic criteria associated with the different stages of the disease (erythematous papule, ulcerated and/or necrotic papule, and cicatricial lesion). The dermoscopic pattern was similar in all patients and varied with the different stages of the disease.
