Vitiligo: more than a change in color.

Vitiligo is a very well known disorder due to the loss of the melanocytes in the skin. The mechanism has not been totally elucidated, but an autoimmune reaction against the melanocytes is at the base of this clinical entity. The skin is the most common target, but the hair, including the eyelashes can be also affected.
