Aug 12th 2014 at 11:21 PM

Vitiligo is a disease in which the cells that produce skin pigment (melanin) is destroyed, giving rise to white spots, which may appear on any part of the body, although the places more frequent are the face, neck, nose, nipples, navel and genitals.Between 1 and 2% of the world's population suffer from it; half of them develop pigment loss before 20 years of age, and one in five, have family members with this same disease. This disorder affects all races and without distinction of sex.

Vitiligo, is a benign disease, and in most cases constitutes only an aesthetic problem; However a minority and for the relationship that it has found with immunological disorders (defects in our natural immune system), have increased risk for diseases of the thyroid, pernicious anemia (lack of vitamin B12, Addison's disease (insufficient functioning of the adrenal gland), alopecia aerate (fall of hair in the form of wheels), which makes it convenient to carry out studies that include complete blood count in all patients with vitiligo blood chemistry and a profile of thyroid, to rule out possible associations.But what causes this disease?The true cause is unknown.

White spots appear after suffering emotional stress or physical trauma, such as burns in some people. Scientifically speaking, are the following: Genetic theory: know there family history much as 40% in cases of vitiligo. It speaks of a transmitted predisposition.* The theory of infection by bacteria or viruses.Neuroendocrine theory: that a substance released by the central nervous system (from pituitary or pituitary gland), which will increase or decrease the production of pigment to the skin could exist.Psychosomatic theory has many followers, but does not explain all cases. The skin is an extensive organ initiator and recipient of stimuli, a large mirror which reflects many trends unconscious and psychosomatic problems. It is thought that vitiligo can be a dermal equivalent of anguish or its consequences. A fact is that the presence of stains alters significantly the psyche and well-being of the patient.
