Local patterns can be presented in the lesion with an irregular/regular or atypical/typical nature, implying malignancy or not. Figure 1 shows some examples of local patterns. In the literature we can find numerous works that are focused on the automatic identification of local features. They are briefly explained in the subsections below. Pigment Network The pigment network is the most studied local pattern. The reason is that it is the most common local pattern in melanocytic lesions, and the identification of melanocytic lesions is the first step in the procedure of pigmented skin lesion diagnosis as explained in the Introduction Section.

Lines and holes of the pigment network were identified and 69 clinically inspired features were extracted: 20 structural features, including network thickness and its variation within the lesion, as well as size of the holes and its variation along the network; 2 geometric features to study the ’uniformity’ of the network; 37 chromatic features; and 10 textural features, using the five classical statistical texture measurements, also proposed in [45].
