FAQWhat is vitiligo?


Vitiligo (pronounced vit-ill-EYE-go) is a generally unpredictable skin disease that causes a gradual loss of skin color and overlying hair on different parts of the body.

Contrary to popular belief, vitiligo is not a cosmetic disorder but a systemic disease affecting the largest body organ. An error in the immune system causes it to attack melanocytes, the pigment producing cells in the skin. As the melanocytes disappear, the skin loses its natural color.
