The success rate in treating this condition in conventional medicines is limited and sometimes, treatment follows with side effects.

This is a case documented from the ongoing clinical research study on vitiligo at Clinical Research Unit (Homoeopathy), Chennai. The case was treated with Phosphorus over a period of 17 months with steady improvement which is evident from the photographs and improvement in baseline scores of presentation of the case.
