The disease is characterized by the appearance of depigmentation areas located mainly on the face, extremities and genital region of the individuals that suffer from it. It can remain localized in these places for a long time or spread rapidly throughout the body until it is fully depigmented. The disease is due to the destruction of a type of cell called melanocyte that is responsible for producing the pigment that colors the skin (melanin).
