Abstract

Teledermatology is an expanding field within dermatology that has grown and become more clinically accepted by both patients and doctors. With approximately 260 million mobile phone users in the US and 4–6 billion worldwide with access to mobile phones, teledermatology serves as a potentially useful tool for diagnosis and management (Samkange-Zeeb and Blettner in Emerg Health Threats J, https://doi.org/10.3134/ehtj.09.005, 2009). In this review, we provide a detailed overview of mobile phone technology and the accumulating evidence for its incorporation into dermatology. Key questions addressed include accuracy and concordance between mobile teledermatology and face-to-face dermatology for the diagnosis of skin conditions. Similarly, accuracy and concordance were compared for the management of skin conditions. To track the development of mobile phone technology, we also assessed how data were captured, stored, and displayed in teledermatology studies.
