Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Vitiligo skin disorder. Smiling woman with areas of vitiligo skin depigmentation (pink) on her face. The cause of this disorder, where the skin loses its natural pigmentation, is not well understood. It is not physically harmful, with the effects being mainly psychological and social, 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, or the use of skin grafts, with varying amounts of success. For this patient undergoing skin graft therapy, see images M729/051-053.
