Vitiligo is a condition which affects the skin. Melanin is the substance which gives colour to our hair, skin, and eyes. For people with vitiligo, melanin production gets disrupted.
The most obvious sign of this condition are white patches on the skin where the melanocyte cells have failed to deliver Melanin.
Scientists have categorised vitiligo as an autoimmune disorder because they don’t know why vitiligo destroys melanocytes and no external cause seems to be responsible.
