Early Localized Vitiligo, a Medical Emergency: Long Term Follow up Study
Abstract Take Home Message
In our experience we recommend starting systemic immunomodulatory treatment in vitiligo as early as possible to minimize or even prevent recurrence; it is a race against time. This could be the only way out to prevent development of otherwise incurable acral vitiligo. Additionally, it could spare patients with segmental vitiligo the frequent need for surgery.
