Resumen

La Dermatología es una rama de la Medicina en la que se ha sentido ampliamente el impacto del desarrollo tecnológico del ultrasonido de alta resolución. En la actualidad, son múltiples sus indicaciones tanto en enfermedades benignas como malignas, y siguen creciendo día a día en beneficio de los pacientes.
El ultrasonido no pretende reemplazar la juiciosa interpretación clínica del dermatólogo ni otras herramientas disponibles, como la dermatoscopia. Por el contrario, es una herramienta adicional que brinda información útil, invisible al ojo clínico, y que confirma, descarta o apoya el diagnóstico del médico tratante. El ultrasonido de alta resolución es preciso, accesible y de bajo costo, en comparación con otros métodos diagnósticos.
En este artículo se revisan sus indicaciones, hallazgos y ventajas en algunas de las enfermedades dermatológicas benignas más frecuentes.
