Utilisation de la photothérapie dans le traitement du vitiligo

Abstract : Vitiligo is a skin disease characterized by the appearance of white patches affecting 0.5 to 1% of the world population. These white patches result from a chronic and progressive loss of epidermal melanocytes and follicular reservoir. Its etiology remains unknown. Currently, there are several ways to treat this disease (topical steroids, calcineurin inhibitors, phototherapy and transplant melanocytes). Phototherapy is a reference treatment in the management of vitiligo. The goal of therapy is based on the stimulation of remaining melanocytes in the skin at the task level to get repigmentation.
