    Vitiligo Treatment: Patient’s or Doctor's Decision ?!!

  • Summary

    New insights into the pathogenesis, classifications, and prognosis of different types of vitiligo that have developed during the last few years. This made choosing the suitable treatment for physicians easier according to fixed treatment algorithms based on their knowledge. However, in many occasions, those decisions do not meet the patient's needs and approval. Patients’ decisions are usually based upon the ample information they get through the internet and social media together with their own fears, psychological and social reaction to the disease. A patient-doctor consensus at the beginning of the treatment journey is essential to ensure treatment success.
