What is Vitiligo or Leucoderma, White Patches?

It is an auto-immune disorder of skin, in which the skin gets completely depigmented. It is estimated that 1 percent of the global population suffers from leucoderma, though the density of patients differ from one place to another. The first step towards diagnosis of this disease is merely closely looking at the marks. The white patches are quite conspicuous and are easily identifiable. The hair in the portion of the skin affected with Vitiligo also turns white and hence the disease can be easily identified. Modern dermatologists also use Wood’s Lamp, a specialized UV light, to differentiate between normal skin and leucoderma affected skin.
