Aim: to evaluate the picture of dermatoscopy in case of psoriasis at different stages of the disease. Materials and Methods. We observed 30 patients with a diagnosis of disseminated papular — plaque psoriasis at the stage of progression. Dermatoscopic study was conducted by the expert class videodermatoskop MoleMaxHD (company Derma Medical Systems, Austria), with an increase from x30 to x80 to initiation of therapy, on the 7th and 15th days of treatment. Results. Changes of dermatoscopic picture in psoriasis are observed on the first days of treatment, and outperformed the major clinical manifestations of infections detected by the human eye. Conclusion. Dermatoscopy reveals the earliest signs of positive dynamics of the therapy and can be used to select a rational method of treatment.
