What is vitiligo?
There’s a lot more to vitiligo than its cosmetic impact. Vitiligo is a complex medical condition that causes depigmentation of the skin. The most common form of this condition is called "nonsegmental vitiligo," where depigmentation occurs on both sides of the body. Though it can be a highly visible condition, it starts below the surface. Regardless of gender, skin tone, race, or age, vitiligo can affect anyone. But the better we understand vitiligo, the more confidently it can be managed.
