Vitiligo is a condition that affects the skin and causes it to lose its color, also known as its pigment. This makes your skin appear much lighter than its actual tone, or it completely changes color and becomes white. The areas of your skin that have lost their pigment are called macules if they are less than one centimeter broad, and they are referred to as patches if they are wider than one centimeter. If you have vitiligo on an area of your body that is covered by hair, the color of your hair may change to a whiter or grayer shade.
This disorder manifests itself when the melanocytes in your body are attacked and destroyed by your immune system. Melanocytes are the cells in the skin responsible for producing melanin, which gives skin color and pigmentation.
