The value of dermoscopy in the detection of skin cancer is well established. Less is published on the utility of dermoscopy in the evaluation of pediatric skin disease. Our review (in two parts) aims to serve as an update on pediatric dermoscopy and to provide readers with a practical application for the use of dermoscopy in pediatric dermatology clinics. In part I, we propose a dermoscopy algorithm for pediatric skin disease and melanocytic growths, and in part II, we address vascular growths, common skin infections, and inflammatory conditions for which dermoscopy is valuable.
