What is Vitiligo ?

Vitiligo is a chronic skin condition characterized by the development of white patches on the skin.

  1. Our skin has colour forming cells called melanocytes.
  2. In vitiligo, our immunity starts attacking these colour forming cells.
  3. Loss of colour forming cells leads to loss of pigment production in skin
  4. This leads to white colour in skin where colour forming cells were killed. This condition is called vitiligo or Leucoderma.
