Vitiligo is the most common depigmentation skin disease which causes loss of skin and hair colour in patches that expand with time.Unfortunately, this disease is still known as stigma in some countries. The worldwide prevalence of vitiligo ranges between 0.5 and 2%. Around 25% of cases occurred before 10 years-old, while 50% of cases occurred before 20 years-old.
Ipokrate is observing the World vitiligo day to raise public awareness that vitiligo could affect anyone. Vitiligo is a disease and not a shame.
