Vitiligo skin condition. Normally pigmented skin on the palm of a woman's hand in a case of vitiligo. The wrist is affected by the vitiligo (far left). This skin 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. This is the palm of the hand, which is unaffected by the vitiligo. For the upper side of the hand, which is affected by the vitiligo, see image C037/2257. Photographed in India.
