    Introduction Vitiligo is a condition in which your skin loses melanin, the pigment that determines the color of your skin, hair and eyes. If the cells that produce melanin die or no longer form melanin, slowly growing white patches of irregular shapes appear on your skin. Vitiligo usually starts as small areas of pigment loss that spread and become larger with time. These changes in your skin can result in stress and worries about your appearance.

Meisenheimer, M.D. a board certified Dermatologist and skin care specialist based in Orlando, Florida. This information is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice or treatment of a dermatologist or other physician. What is it? Vitiligo is a peculiar disorder of the skin that can occur at any age. Typically it appears as a small, white, slowly growing patch. These white patches can occur anywhere on the skin. Vitiligo is more noticeable in dark skinned individuals, and it typically does not itch, burn or sting. What causes it? Vitiligo is a type of autoimmune disease. For some unknown reason your body's immune system mistakenly thinks that the skin's pigment cells are foreign invaders. The immune system attacks the pigment cells and the loss of these cells causes white patches to form. Is it dangerous?

Overview Vitiligo is a disease where the immune system turns against itself (autoimmune disease) where immune cells of the body attack the color-producing (pigment-producing) cells to cause white patches on the skin, which may contain hairs that are white in color. It may be seen with other autoimmune diseases, such as thyroid disease, alopecia areata, diabetes mellitus, Addison disease, and myasthenia gravis. The way that vitiligo progresses varies greatly; it may remain in the area where it started (localized) or it may become more widespread.

Vitiligo is a condition which involves complete loss of melanin, the primary skin pigment. The cause of vitiligo is unknown but it appears to be an acquired condition and may appear at any age. The resulting lesions are white in comparison to the surrounding skin. Vitiligo may occur in the same areas on both sides of the face or it may be patchy. The typical vitiligo lesion is flat and depigmented, but maintains the normal skin texture.

Scientists Implicate Gene in Vitiligo and Other Autoimmune Diseases In a study appearing in the March 22 New England Journal of Medicine , scientists supported by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) have discovered a connection between a specific gene and the inflammatory skin condition vitiligo, as well as a possible host of autoimmune diseases. Vitiligo is a chronic condition in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. Similar patches also appear on both the mucous membranes (tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose), and perhaps in the retina (inner layer of the eyeball). The hair that grows on areas affected by vitiligo sometimes turns white. That finding prompted the researchers to study families with multiple affected members and to look for similarities in genes among those who were affected. By searching the genome, they discovered a gene

What Is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo (vit-ill-eye-go) is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin, the tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose and genital and rectal areas (mucous membranes), and the retina of the eyes are destroyed. As a result, white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. The hair that grows in areas affected by vitiligo may turn white. The cause of vitiligo is not known, but doctors and researchers have several different theories. One theory is that people develop antibodies that destroy the melanocytes in their own bodies. Another theory is that melanocytes destroy themselves. Finally, some people have reported that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress triggered vitiligo; however, these events have not been scientifically proven to cause vitiligo.

TCM Hospital: Vitiligo And Traditional Chinese Medicine In China
Note: The following text is selected from A Practical English-Chinese Library of Traditional Chinese Medicine by Prof.Dr. Enqin Zhang(Engin CAN) 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.

Some evidence of short term benefit with steroids, light therapies and other treatments for vitiligo, but long term benefits and harms of treating have not yet been established
Vitiligo causes a loss of skin colour in patches which can be psychologically distressing. A variety of methods for repigmenting the skin of people with vitiligo has been tried in various parts of the world. There is some evidence from individual trials to support short term benefit from topical steroids, various forms of ultraviolet light with topical preparations, and other therapies including skin grafting and ginkgo biloba, but long term benefit and safety have been poorly reported. There is a great need for an extensive and well planned programme of research to find effective ways of managing this condition. The Cochrane Library (ISSN 1464-780X).

ABSTRACT Background Autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases involve interactions between genetic risk factors and environmental triggers. We searched for a gene on chromosome 17p13 that contributes to a group of epidemiologically associated autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases. The group includes various combinations of generalized vitiligo, autoimmune thyroid disease, latent autoimmune diabetes in adults, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, pernicious anemia, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Addison's disease.
