What are types of vitiligo?
Vitiligo generally appears in one of three patterns.
In one pattern (focal pattern), the depigmentation is limited to one or only a few areas.
Some people develop depigmented patches on only one side of their bodies (segmental pattern).
But for most people who have vitiligo, depigmentation occurs on different parts of the body (generalized pattern).
In addition to white patches on the skin, people with vitiligo may have premature graying of the scalp hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard. People with dark skin may notice a loss of color inside their mouths.
