Abstract

Vitiligo is a disease characterized by destruction of melanocytes in the skin. Universal vitiligo is a rare type of vitiligo in which 80% of the body is depigmented. Depigmenting normal skin areas with depigmenting agents is one of the treatment options. Here, we present the case of a patient with universal vitiligo who was successfully treated with monobenzylether of hydroquinone.
