High-frequency ultrasonography (HFUS) has emerged as a non-invasive and cost-effective diagnostic tool for evaluating the outcomes of dermatological therapeutic procedures.

This manuscript presents a comprehensive collection of sonographic images depicting cutaneous lesions associated with various dermatoses, including verruca vulgaris, epidermoid cyst, maculopapular cutaneous mastocytosis and lichen sclerosus et atrophicus.

Material and methods:
Drawing from an extensive review of the existing literature and supported by empirical observations, the study highlights key sonographic attributes observable in both normal and pathological skin variants.

It has been demonstrated that individual skin lesions exhibit distinct characteristics on HFUS. Furthermore, ultrasonographic examination has proven to be valuable for the objective assessment of disease severity.

Additionally, the study contributes to a deeper understanding of HFUS as a valuable tool in dermatological diagnostics.
