What is Vitiligo?

Posted on: September 13, 2012


Vitiligo appears as large white patches on the skin that are devoid of pigmentation. It is an autoimmune condition affecting 1%-2% of the population and is most strikingly visible and disfiguring in people of color. Medical treatment includes topical steroids, tacrolimus and the application of a photosensitizing agent followed by controlled UVA light exposure. Monobenzone or Benoquin is the treatment of last resort, permanently depigmenting any remaining unaffected areas to achieve an even color Additionally, camouflage cosmetics can be helpful.
