Vitiligo (In layman’s term called Leucoderma), is a skin disorder wherein people notice white colored patches on the skin. These white colored patches are formed mainly due to the destruction of the pigment forming cells i.e., Melanocytes. These discolored patches can be seen in different areas of the body like hands, fingers, wrist, the skin around the eyes, around the mouth, arm pits, scalp, genitals etc, and may vary in size and shape. Vitiligo can affect people of all age groups and genders. In few cases, the discoloration may be restricted to a small area, whereas in few cases it can spread to the entire body. Based on the location and extent of depigmentation, Vitiligo is classified into generalized [Vulgaris, acro facial, mixed] and localized [focal, segmental and mucosal].
It is an undeniable fact that society gives more value to our appearance. People with beautiful skin and face receives greatest amount of attention. Though Vitiligo is not a fatal condition but it has a drastic psychological impact on its sufferers and their quality of life. As Vitiligo affects physical appearance, individuals suffering from it may go through emotional trauma and are also at huge risk of developing depression and anxiety.
