Abstract

Vitiligo is an acquired, chronic autoimmune pigmentary disorder that has a profound impact on the quality of life (QoL). It usually appears in childhood or adolescence, with 50% occurring before the age of 20.1 To date, no systematic review has evaluated the impact of vitiligo on the QoL of paediatric patients.
