Özet

Introduction: Dermatological follow-up is essential in management of pigmented lesions. Elderly people may have poor compliance to follow-up schedules because of immobilization and general health problems. In this study, we aimed to determine the general features of geriatric patients admitted to dermoscopy unit and evaluate their compliance both to follow-up and surgical recommendations.
