Halo nevi — nevi with an depigmented circle around it, usually on the trunk — are about 10x more common in vitiligo patients than in the general population, especially in children.
Children with vitiligo-associated halo nevi are more likely to have the generalized vitiligo subtype, thus requiring a whole body skin examination by a dermatologist at regular intervals.
However, halo nevi do not significantly alter vitiligo treatment response or elevate risk for disease progression.
