Caption: Ultraviolet photograph of vitiligo (leucoderma), a skin disease affecting the patient's right forearm, hand & fingers. The affected areas lose their pigment & become white, but no other changes appear. The cause is unknown, & treatment is to a large extent unsatisfactory; cosmetic disguise may be of some value. In ordinary photography, the condition is not as clearly visible as in ultraviolet photography (see M290/03M).
