Caption: Vitiligo. Patch of non-pigmented skin by the mouth of a patient with vitiligo. Such patches are the characteristic of this skin disorder. The cause is not well understood, and the effects are mainly social and psychological effects resulting from the patient's appearance. Treatment varies with a patient's age and the severity of the condition, but usually involves the application of steroids, with varying amounts of success. Photographed in Africa.
