1 Are you suffering from Vitiligo? on Mon Apr 05, 2010 10:54 pm


New To CP!
Vitiligo is more commonly known as
leucoderma, which simply means white (leuco) skin (derma), i.e. a skin disorder
where it loses its normal coloration. It is also medically known as achromia,
which means loss of color.

Basically, Vitiligo can hardly be called as a disease but a skin- disorder that
has more social than medical significance, especially amongst the dark skin
people. Due to retarded melanin formation, there is loss of pigmentation.

The Vitiligo sufferers are observed all over the world, including the white
skin communities. However, epidemiologically most cases are recorded in
India (8.8%) and Mexico. Males and females
are affected equally, inclusive of children age group. It may begin at any age.
Childhood vitiligo is not uncommon.
