Q: What are the latest advancements in vitiligo treatment?
A:The basic principles and the medicines are the same. To my mind there is nothing new in the last 1-2 years. The various modalities of treatment include psoralins, exposure to UV rays (sunlight, artificial lamps or lasers), extracts from placenta, growth factors, immunomodulators (levamisole, tacrolimus) and immunosuppressives. Surgery can be helpful for some recalcitrant cases.
