Pathophysiology overview

Mauro Picardo, Alain Taïeb

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Core Messages: Vitiligo is a multifactorial disorder and a good angle of attack is still lacking. Different intrinsic, metabolic and functional defects appear to affect melanocytes and other cell types. The stage at which inflammation and autoim-munity are involved remains unclear. The understanding of the role of the melano-cyte stem cells will provide a new insight into the therapeutical approaches.
