Similar patches also appear on the mucous membranes (tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose), the retina (inner layer of the eyeball), and the mucous membranes of both the mouth and nose.

Essentially, vitiligo is produced by two different processes.
- Melanin, a color pigment, is destroyed
- inability to produce melanin
CAUSES OF VITILIGO
There is strong evidence that people with vitiligo inherit a group of three genes that make them susceptible to depigmentation, but there is no known cause for the condition. The most widely accepted theory is that depigmentation results from vitiligo being an autoimmune disease, in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues or organs.
Three systemic illnesses are connected to vitiligo.
- Pernicious anemia
- Addison’s disease
Around 1% of the population of the United States and the entire world are affected by the disorder, and about 8% of the populations of India and Mexico are also affected.
The skin condition known as vitiligo, which is more common in people with dark skin than in other skin tones, is hardly a disease but rather more of a social than a medical concern.
SYMPTOMS OF VITILIGO
White patches (depigmentation) are more frequently found on sun-exposed areas of the body, including the hands, feet, arms, face, and lips. Other common areas for white patches to appear are the armpits and groin, as well as around the mouth, eyes, nostrils, navel, genitals, and rectum. People with vitiligo typically first notice white patches (depigmentation) on their skin.
One of three patterns are typically seen with vitiligo.
- Depigmentation in a focal pattern is confined to a single or a small number of areas.
- Depigmented patches appear in a segmental pattern, only on one side of the body.
- The most typical pattern of depigmentation is the generalized pattern, which affects both sides of the body symmetrically.
People with vitiligo may also experience premature graying of their eyebrows, beard, eyelashes, and scalp hair, as well as white patches on their skin. People with darker skin may also notice a loss of color in their mouths.
Emotional and Psychological Aspects
Even though vitiligo is typically not harmful medically, its emotional and psychological effects can be devastating. In fact, in India, women with the disease are occasionally subjected to marriage discrimination. Having vitiligo after marriage can be grounds for divorce.
People with vitiligo can experience emotional stress, especially if the condition develops on visible body parts, like the face, hands, arms, and feet; or on the genitals. Adolescents, who are frequently particularly concerned about their appearance, can be devastated by widespread vitiligo. Some people with vitiligo feel embarrassed by their condition.
Fortunately, there are a number of methods available to assist individuals in managing vitiligo.
