This is a skin condition in which there is loss of pigment from areas of skin resulting in irregular white patches with normal skin texture
Vitiligo is more noticeable in darker skinned people because of the contrast of white patches against dark skin. It involves a sudden or gradual appearance of flat areas of normal-feeling skin with complete pigment loss. Lesions appear as flat areas with no pigment and with a darker border. The edges are sharply defined but irregular. Frequently affected areas are the face, elbows, knees, hands, feet and genitalia.
