These images were all reviewed by a consultant dermatologist, any that were removed had their diagnosis confirmed by histology. What do you think they are? Which ones would you flag up to their GP?

The skin is the easiest part of the body for the Podiatrist to study, and we often have more time to do it during a routine consultation than most other health professionals. You may not be familiar with some of the lesions named in the quiz above but they are all ones that can be routinely encountered and are worthy of study. You could perhaps initially look them up on the web, or in reference works you have to hand. There is information on them all in the 'answers' but initially researching them yourself can enhance your CPD experience.

You will see that the images above are all taken with professional equipment, but knowing what you are looking for is more important than what you look with. Workshops and CPD dermatology courses can be organised by the IOCP Board of Education, possibly locally if sufficient demand, flag up your interest via Head Office.
