People with vitiligo lose their color progressively over time, in locations easily seen like faces and hands. Half of the vitiligo cases start by age 20, one-quarter by age 10 years, making this one of the most common pediatric skin conditions. Children with vitiligo get teased, bullied, and become self-conscious. There are no specific guidelines for the care of pediatric vitiligo. We will gather as experts in pediatric vitiligo to critically review published evidence and make informed recommendations to guide the care of children with vitiligo.
