Abstract

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) presents by skin lesions secondary to a viral skin infection at the expense of epidermal keratinocytes having appearances with specific intracytoplasmic inclusions caused by the smallpox virus. It is a frequent pathology that affects the skin and mucous membranes. The diagnosis of CD is easy, but when clinical features lack atypical lesions, it can hinder the diagnosis of CD. It is then that there is a need for early and easy diagnosis of CD by the ticket of the dermoscopy which is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that allows visualizing the different dermoscopic aspects that we describe through the same observation.
