Vitiligo, illustration. Vitiligo (leukoderma) is a chronic skin condition that causes loss of pigment resulting in irregular patches of pale skin. It is caused by a lack of melanocytes (cells producing melanin) in the skin, however the cause of this is not well understood. It is not physically harmful, and the effects are mainly psychological and social, resulting from the patient's appearance.
