FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT DEPIGMENTED
 
What are the depigmentation of the skin?
The depigmentation are conditions in the color of the skin, characterized by the absence, decrease or disappearance of melanin pigment.

What types of depigmentation are there?
The main types of discoloration are:

»  The Vitíligo (leukoderma) is the major cause of skin depigmentation, affecting 0.5-2% of the general population, without preference of sex. It is characterized by areas of depigmentation of the skin with sharp borders, which can appear anywhere on the body, usually symmetrical. Its origin is unknown, although there are several theories about its causes:
• Genetics
• Autoinmune
• Failures in the defense against free radicals by metabolic defects.
• Growth factor deficiency in melanocytes.
• Intrinsic defect of melanocytes.
• Viral (cytomegalovirus CMB).
• Inflammatory.

Classically accepted the absence of functional melanocytes within the lesion by slow destruction. In fact histopathological studies have demonstrated the presence of melanocytes but in an undifferentiated state, unable to produce melanin.

»  Postinflammatory hypopigmentation, also a frequent cause of hypopigmentation, occurring as a sequel after various dermatoses (eg psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, lupus, pityriasis alba, etc..), Burns, trauma.
»  Hypopigmentation infectious, as in case of pityriasis versicolor, leprosy, post herpetic.
»  Depigmentation agents chemical and pharmacological: phenols (hydroquinone), sulfhydryl, arsenic, steroids, etc.. In all cases of vitiligo should eliminate exposure to known depigmenting agents.
»  In Genetic Diseases such as piebaldism (autosomal dominant transmission, manifested by the presence of depigmented skin areas with poliosis due to the absence of melanocytes) and oculocutaneous albinism, autosomal recessive disease in which the absence / dysfunction prevents melanocyte tyrosinase (whose number is normal) to produce melanin, the most severe form of albinism is tyrosinase-negative absolute impossibility of melanogenesis. There are no specific treatments for these genetic diseases.

- Exposure to certain chemicals (hydroquinone and other phenols, sulfhydryl, steroids, etc..) Can generate chemical vitiligo.
- Some inflammatory diseases can leave areas of depigmentation in the aftermath of their injuries. This is the case of eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, etc.
- The most frequent cause of depigmentation is Vitiligo. Spots are purchased, usually symmetrical ("mirror"), pigmentation, streaks, white as milk, completely amelanotic, with clear borders. In light skin (phototype I and II) the difference with the surrounding normal skin is not so obvious, needing a Wood's lamp examination to highlight it. The contrast with the surrounding normal skin is accentuated by the sun, as the pigment lesion does not tan. The lesions are spreading centrifugally.

What treatments are available?
To treat any discoloration first need a good diagnosis, because treatment varies largely depending on the cause. Get in touch with your doctor. It is the only one to guide you and decide your treatment.
