Sir,

Polarized Contact dermoscopy (PCD) scores higher over polarized non-contactdermoscopy (PNCD) to visualize specific structures like shiny white streaks,crystalline areas, fine dots or peppering, to differentiate between blue and white colours and for vascular lesions. (1) Conventional contact plates that are supplied with videodermoscopes, pose a challenge to examine difficult-to-access areas likethe concha of the external ear(Figure 1a&b), interdigital area and the vestibule of the mouth.These areas have irregular contours, thereby making uniform contact difficult.These plates are limited by their size, shape and financial effect. We devised theuse of a simple glass vial as a contact plate to overcome this. (Figure-2a,b&c) Fig. 1a,b, 2a,b,c

Technical Solution: We used an empty, transparent, uncorked 1mL glass vial (injection histoglob) vial as a contact plate adapter. When inserted into the central column of the polarized video dermoscope, head first, it makes for a perfect fit, and its base serves as a contact plate. The refracted light from the surface of the contact plate is blocked by the polarizing filter. Thisassembly can be used to facilitate uniform contact with the surface, and visualize space-constrained areas, as shown in the figures. The resultant images and sharp, and the said structures are delineated, with no compromise on quality. (Figure-2d&e)
