Abstract

In this article, the authors summarize the published literature on the reliability and accuracy of teledermatology. The first section reports on the diagnostic reliability of teledermatology compared with face-to-face clinic consultation. In the second section, the authors report on the "intragroup" diagnostic agreement between either clinic dermatologists or teledermatologists. The third section discusses the diagnostic accuracy for those studies that include definitive histopathologic diagnosis. The last section summarizes the literature comparing clinical management decisions by clinic dermatologists to those made by teledermatologists.
