Vitiligo is an acquired skin disease of localized pigment loss, which is characterized by irregular white patches on the skin without subjective symptoms.


Main Points of Diagnosis

1. The white patches vary in size, shape and number, with a clear border. There may be an increase in pigment around the white patches. The hair within the area of the patches becomes white, too. The white patches may gradually expand and coalesce with each other. They may be stable and unchangeable at the advanced stage. Some child patients may recover spontaneously at the early stage.

2. There is no subjective symptom. Erythema and blisters may appear after exposure to sunlight. The patient has a sense of burning heat in the affected areas.

3. The disease is chronic. It may occur at any age, any site, and is common in adolescents.
