Teledermatology is defined as practical dermatology using adequate means of electronic communication and information technologies. In teledermatology, the most economical and representative method is the so-called "store and forward’’ (SF) method. SF method commonly uses digital photography and history that are delivered over the Internet and is intended for consultation with a dermatologist who is spatially distant. The aim of the research was to determine the degree of diagnostic accuracy and diagnostic agreement of the diagnoses that were determined by real-time examination and diagnosis that have been set by teledermatology method in various consultative centers. Material for the evaluation of the clinical diagnosis reperesent 300 digital photographs of 100 dermatological diseases. Out of 100 diagnoses that were sent to teledermatology evaluation, four consultative teledermatology centers have set a total of 321 correct diagnosis. The obtained values of all teledermatologist individually in relation to the primary clinical diagnosis are statistically significant and may be accepted as a measure of validity of the method used.
