Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease in which the skin loses melanin, the pigment that determines the colour of the skin, hair and eyes.
Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or no longer form melanin, causing white patches of irregular shapes to appear on your skin.
Vitiligo affects all races but may be more noticeable in people with darker skin.
A patch of Vitiligo begins as a localized area of hypo-pigmentation that becomes chalky white after a variable period.
Causes of Vitiligo
Vitiligo occurs when melanin-forming cells fail to produce melanin pigment.
Doctors and scientists have different theories :
It may be due to immune system disorder in which person’s immune system reacts against the body’s own organs or tissues.
Heredity may be a factor.
Some people have reported a single event, such as sunburn or emotional distress, that triggered the condition.
Sometimes pigment loss can occur in someone who has had a melanoma.
Vitiligo is more common in people with certain autoimmune conditions such as Hyperthyroidism, Alopecia areata, Pernicious anemia.

Types of Vitiligo
To easier explain this condition, scientists have separated vitiligo in basically two types which are called: non-segmental, and segmental vitiligo.
It is the most common type of vitiligo and occurs in up to 90% of the people who have this disorder.
In non-segmental vitiligo, the patches often become visible equally on both sides of the body, with some kind of symmetry. These unusual symmetrical patches most commonly appear on skin that is exposed daily to the sun, such as the face, neck, and hands, but it also appears on these other areas:
backs of the hands
Non-segmental vitiligo has sub-categories:
Generalized Vitiligo: the most familiar pattern, it has no specific area or size when the white patches start occurring
Acrofacial Vitiligo: This type of vitiligo is considered only when the appearance is mostly on the fingers or toes
Mucosal Vitiligo: The appearance of the depigmentation generally around the mucous membranes and lips
Universal Vitiligo: It is very rare since depigmentation has to cover most of the body
Focal Vitiligo: one or a few scattered white patches in small certain areas. It is often noticeable in young children
