Today, dermatoscopy is an integral part of every clinical skin examination, as it markedly enhances the early detection of melanocytic and nonmelanocytic skin cancer (NMSC) compared to naked-eye inspection. Besides its diagnostic use, this noninvasive method is increasingly important in the selection of as well as the response assessment to various therapies used for NMSC, including basal cell carcinoma, actinic keratoses, squamous cell carcinoma, and also rare tumors such as Merkel cell carcinoma, angiosarcoma, or dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Thus, dermatoscopy is a valid tool for the preoperative assessment of tumor margins in basal cell carcinoma, but also for follow-up of actinic keratoses after topical treatment. The present article presents an overview on the use of dermatoscopy in the diagnosis and therapy of various types of NMSC. © 2016 Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft (DDG).
