Skin lesions are not uncommon in children, and most of them are benign. However, they can be a matter of concern. Although in most cases the diagnosis can be suspected based on clinical history and physical examination, in some cases clinical findings are nonspecific. High-frequency color Doppler US is a noninvasive technique that can play a relevant role in these cases and give important anatomical information for final clinical management. US can be helpful to avoid unnecessary surgery, plan a surgical excision and avoid advanced imaging studies such as MRI and CT, which have a lower resolution for the skin. Different lesions can look similar on US, and clinical correlation is always important. The purpose of this article is to show a variety of skin lesions that occur in children, emphasizing clinical–sonographic correlation, and to familiarize pediatric radiologists with the US technique and sonographic appearance of common skin lesions in children.
