The 2016 International League of Dermatological Societies’ revised glossary for the description of cutaneous lesions

In order to facilitate effective communication in dermatology, a clearly defined glossary with precise descriptions is essential. The International League of Dermatological Societies’ (ILDS) ‘Glossary of basic dermatology lesions’ was first published in 1987. A quarter of a century later, the ILDS made the decision to revise and expand this nomenclature.

This was published as an open access article in the British Journal of Dermatology in 2016 and can be viewed here:
