Vitiligo is a long-term condition that causes pale, white patches to develop on the skin due to lack of a chemical called melanin.

This new edition has been fully revised to provide dermatologists with the latest information on the diagnosis and treatment of vitiligo. Presented with a step by step approach, the book begins with an overview of the condition’s historical background, genetic susceptibility, and psycho-social aspects.

In this book, the author shared his personal experience in dealing with vitiligo, a skin disorder that physically and emotionally affects millions of people. Through diligent research, careful analyses, and persistent trial and errors, he finally achieved successful recovery by using a combination of commonly available therapies. The book also provides systematic and detailed information on effective vitiligo medications and therapies, including safety precautions and operating procedures, and can serve as a comprehensive guide for vitiligo treatment. Vitiligo is rarely an isolated skin disorder; rather, it is often one of the symptoms of certain underlying health issues. This is perhaps the reason why vitiligo is considered difficult to treat: without properly addressing the internal causes of vitiligo, repigmentation through topical treatment alone might not be effective or sustainable, and relapse could happen. The ultimate solution should be treating vitiligo from both inside and outside. The author shared his strategies and suggestions in tracking down and dealing with the internal issues. Vitiligo can be healed! This book will inspire you to take a new attitude: dealing with the condition actively, rather than accepting it passively. As a practical guide, it will certainly save you tremendous amount of time and money in your journey to complete recovery.

Although vitiligo has traditionally been very difficult to treat, a new breakthrough surgical treatment is expanding options for practitioners and patients. Standard treatments depend on the severity of the condition and the patient's feelings of disfigurement. Cover-up cosmetics work well for some people. Other more sophisticated forms of treatment include gradually developing color back in the depigmented areas (repigmentation) by PUVA or other ultraviolet light treatments, but this is extremely slow and intensive, often requiring several hundred treatments. This new form of treatment, which involves surgically transplanting melanocytes into the white areas, is most successful in patients with stable vitiligo over less than 30% of their body surface area. It complements medical therapies in achieving complete and sustained repigmentation and is rapidly gaining popularity in all major centers. This is the first book available which describes this major advance in detail. Explains the new treatment of surgically transplanting melanocytes into the affected areas of the skin to provide dermatologists and surgeons with the latest state-of-the-art information Written by the international leaders who pioneered this treatment Presents all the latest information on the topic, eliminating the need to search through multiple sources for specific data
