ही एक त्वचेची स्थिती आहे जिथे त्वचेचा रंग हरवतो. आपल्याला आपल्या त्वचेचा रंग रसायनातून मिळतो म्हणजेच त्वचेच्या पेशींमधून बाहेर पडणारे मेलेनिन. जेव्हा शरीराच्या रोगप्रतिकारक शक्तीमुळे या त्वचेच्या पेशी नष्ट होतात तेव्हा त्वचेचा रंग हरवतो. हे शरीरावर पांढरे ठिपके म्हणून सुरू होते जे कालांतराने हळूहळू शरीरावर पसरते.
सहसा ते हात, पाय आणि चेहऱ्यावर सुरू होते परंतु शरीराच्या कोणत्याही भागावर विकसित होऊ शकते.
A. Segmental –Also known as unilateral vitiligo. The white patches affect one area of the body. It usually occurs in young age.
B. Non-Segmental – The patches appear on both sides of body as symmetrical patches – like on both hands, around both eyes, elbows, knees etc. This is more common type.
This type is further divided into :-
1. Generalized – Most common type in which patches appear on any part of the body.
2. Acrofacial – Patches appear on toes, fingers, and hands.
3. Mucosal – In this, patches occur around mucous membranes of the genitals and/or lips.
4. Universal – It spreads to almost every part of the body.
5. Focal – Patches appear in a small area and don’t spread in certain manner.
A. Autoimmune – Body’s immune systems is wrongly attacking the body’s own melanocytes and destroying it. Non-segmental type is thought to be due to this reason.
B. Genetic – some of the genes are associated with increased risk at developing vitiligo. Family history of same disease or other auto-immune conditions can be a contributing factor for this disease.
C. Neurogenic – Segmental type is thought to be caused by poisonous chemicals released from nerve endings.
D. Drug induced – Exposure to some drugs can cause this.
E. Trigger event – such as stress, sunburn, skin trauma. These stresses provoke inflammation leading the immune system to identify melanocytes as foreign and attack them.
Few treatment modalities are available to restore some color which are :-
1. Repigmentation with steroids, Vit D analogue etc. These help in restoring the skin color.
2. Topical immunomodulators -Calcineurin inhibitors might be effective in small lesions.
3. Phototherapy with narrow band ultraviolet B rays combined with plant based substance called psoralen might help to return color in light patches.
4. Camouflage therapy with sunscreen and makeups.
These treatments can help in restoring color but cannot help in stopping the body tendency to spread.
