Abstract

Patients with vitiligo attending the polyclinics of Benghazi during a 9-month period were reviewed. The proportionate case ratio was 0.33% of all skin cases. The mean age at onset of the disease was 19.38 years; mean age at reporting the disease was 23.06 years. There was more frequent involvement of exposed parts in men compared with women. Vitiligo areata responded better to treatment. The history did not confirm the genetic predisposition of the disease. Association with known autoimmune disease is reported.
