Pre vs post-pubertal onset of vitiligo: multivariate analysis indicates atopic diathesis association in pre-pubertal onset vitiligo
British Journal of Dermatology, 05/02/2012
Ezzedine K et al. – Pre–pubertal onset vitiligo is strongly associated with personal and family history of atopy, suggesting that the predisposing immune background in vitiligo is not limited to autoimmunity, as also noted in alopecia areata. This study suggests also reconsidering epidemiological data on sex ratio in vitiligo.
