Vitiligo is a skin disease of unknown origin, possibly an autoimmune disease. It is caused by an overreaction of the body’s defense system that mistakenly attacks the cells that produce the pigment that determines the natural color of the skin, causing white patches.
The disease affects about 1% of the world’s population regardless of gender or race and occurs most frequently after the age of 20, although it can occur at any time in life.
Treatment of vitiligo aims to restore the normal color of the skin. The aesthetic aspect of the disease can be a major psychological and emotional problem for patients.
Conversation “15 Minutes with…” from the editorial of O’Cagliari News, the university hospital newspaper. Thin and simple, it provides 15 minutes of questions and answers with professionals and the ability for the audience to ask questions directly.
