Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease in which pigment cells (melanocytes) are destroyed, resulting in irregularly shaped white patches on the skin. The picture shows how Vitiligo looks. Any part of the body may be affected. Common sites are exposed areas (face, neck, eyes, nostrils, nipples, navel, genitalia), body folds (armpits, groin), sites of injury (cuts, scrapes, burns) and around pigmented moles halo naevi). The hair may also go grey early on the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes and body. White hair is called ‘poliosis’. The retina may also be affected.

Cause of Vitiligo
The cause of Vitiligo is still unknown. There are many theoretical causes.
- Candida Albicans
Candida Albicans is a yeast organism which peacefully coexists in and with many people when it is present in modest amounts. When circumstances lead to the excessive growth of candida in the body, one can develop myriad symptoms of chronic illness. The conditions of overgrowth is called Candidiasis. Other associated disorders may be hair loss, vitiligo, malabsorption, chronic hepatitis, dental enamel dysplasia, and disorders of the thymus gland.
- Dutch Institute for Pigmentdisorders (SNIP)
The Netherlands Institute for Pigment Disorders is a super-specialized medical unit for diagnosis and treatment of patients with pigment problems of skin and hairs. Our frontrunner position is maintained by conducting clinical-related research, and by interacting with other experts and scientific societies.
PUVA is a combination treatment which consists of Psoralens (P) and then exposing the skin to long wave ultraviolet radiation (UVA). It has been available in its present form since 1976.
Psoralens are compounds found in many plants which make the skin temporarily sensitive to UVA. The ancient Egyptians were the first to use psoralens for the treatment of skin diseases thousands of years ago.
- Oxsoralen (Methoxsalen) lotion
Methoxsalen is a naturally occurring substance found in the seeds of the Ammi majus (Umbelliferae) plant and in the roots of Heracleum Candicans. It belongs to a group of compounds known as psoralens or furocou-marins. Is used as a topical repigmenting agent in vitiligo in conjunction with controlled doses of ultraviolet A (320-400 nm) or sunlight.
UVB (narrowband UVB), TL01
UV phototherapy is widely recognised as a treatment of Vitiligo. UV is responsible for stimulating your skin to produce pigmentation, or a sun tan with minimal side effects The effectiveness of UV treatment varies for each Vitiligo sufferer.
- Bioskin therapy
A new and sophisticated emitting equipment of the ultraviolet B rays to 311 [nm] can eliminate the cutaneous dyschromias caused by the vitiligo. The emitted UVB rays are the most effective ones in the therapy of the vitiligo because they stimulate in an optimal way the melanocytes and are active on the immune system of the skin.
Patients with stable vitiligo, a skin disorder characterized by patches of lighter colored, or depigmented skin, may achieve good repigmentation of these areas with skin transplants using skin taken from normally-pigmented areas of their own bodies.
- Vitiligo operative treatment by Dr. Kahn
The primary goal of therapy is to restore the skin's color by restoring melanocytes in the skin. Repigmentation of the skin with melanocytes allows the skin to regain its normal immune/inflammatory functions and improves the appearance of those suffering from this disease.
- Research to transplantation as treatment for vitiligo
Nanny van Geel, M.D., of Ghent University Hospital, Belgium, and colleagues investigated the efficacy of using transplanted pigment cells to treat 28 patients with vitiligo.
The goal of depigmentation is to unify skin color in patients with vitiligo virtually all over the body and those who have failed PUVA, who cannot use PUVA, or who reject the PUVA option. Bleaching with monobenzylether of hydroquinone 20% cream (Benoquin) is a permanent, irreversible process.
Calcipotriol is a medicine that is a derivative of vitamin D. When applied to the skin it works by reducing the production of skin cells. In psoriasis, the scaling and thickening of the skin and the appearance of raised plaques, are the result of excessive skin cell production in this disease. Calcipotriol reduces the excessive skin cell production and therefore helps improve the symptoms of psoriasis. Calcipotriol is available as an ointment or cream for psoriasis plaques on the body, and as a scalp solution for easier application to psoriasis on the scalp.
Medical Tattoo (expirimental)
- Definition of Tattoos & permanent makeup
For some, tattoos are an aesthetic choice or an initiation rite. Some choose permanent makeup as a time saver or because they have physical difficulty applying regular, temporary makeup. For others, tattooing is an adjunct to reconstructive surgery, particularly of the face or breast, to simulate natural pigmentation. People who have lost their eyebrows due to alopecia (a form of hair loss) may choose to have "eyebrows" tattooed on, while people with vitiligo (a lack of pigmentation in areas of the skin) may try tattooing to help camouflage the condition.
- Excimer laser therapy
In a recent study, vitiligo patients, most of whom had failed conventional therapies, were treated with the excimer laser three times a week. Fifty-seven percent of the vitiligo patches treated in the study experienced partial to complete repigmentation in only two weeks. The Xtrac excimer laser represents one of the newest great advances in laser dermatology. This laser emits narrow band ultraviolet B light and has been shown to promote re-pigmentation in those who have lost pigment in their skin.
Folic acid and vitamin B12 (experimental)
Ayurveda from India(experimental)
- What is Ayurveda
What we need to do, is to try to recognize what Ayurveda is, and not 'see' it as just a medicine or as an art in the curing of diseases. Curing diseases is just a part of it. Broadly speaking, Ayurveda covers topics ranging from the evolution of the Universe and its basic components, (Panch Mahabhuta), the constitution of the body, the self or the Atma, and also the topics of the causes of diseases, remedies, ways to cure, and ways of attaining a state of wellbeing. Ayurveda, therefore, is not just about medicines or therapy, it is a very ancient time tested science of life, although promoting health and curing diseases is no doubt one of its main objectives. Ayurveda defines health as Swasthya to be one's own spiritual self. It is the state of equilibrium of the three principles of Vata, Pitta and Kapha along with a connected state of senses, mind and soul.

- Researchers discover 'vitiligo gene'
March 22, 2007 - Scientists have discovered a connection between a gene and the chronic skin condition vitiligo, as well as a possible link to an array of other autoimmune diseases. They found that persons with vitiligo also have a risk of developing other autoimmune diseases, as do their close relatives, even those without the skin condition. By searching the genome, the researchers discovered that NALP1 - a gene that controls part of the immune system that serves to alert the body to viral and bacterial attacks - was a key gene involved in predisposing to vitiligo and all the other autoimmune diseases that ran in these families.

- Vitises gel -Die letzte Neuerung in der Behandlung von Vitiligo
Der Verlust von Melanin in den Melanozyten ist der wesentliche Faktor der Symptome des vitiligo. Vitises® ist eine innovative Behandlung für die Patienten die an vitiligo leiden. Es hat die Form eines örtlich wirkendes Gels, das Mikrokugeln eines festen pflanzlichen Fettes enthält, welche die Enzyme Superoxiddismutase (SOD) und Katalase enthalten. Da es Antioxidantien (Substanzen die vor Zelltod schützen) enthält, reaktiviert Vitises® die Melaninspeicher die in jedem Talgdrüsenfollikel der Haut gebildet werden, und entsprechend die Regpigmentation der weißen Flecken. Dies kann schnell in Form von kleinen runden Flecken beobachtet werden, oder auch flächig indem die Melanozyten nicht mehr völlig verschwinden.
Die Creme beseht laut der anbietenden Person aus Aloe Vera + Apfelpektin und soll vor einer Bestrahlung angewendet werden. Im englischsprachigen Forum wurde erwähnt, dass die Kombination evtl. die Sonnenempfindlichkeit herabsetzt und somit in Kombination mit Bestrahlung eine ähnliche Wirkung wie PUVA erzielt.
