Leucoderma

10/20/2005

Question:

my husband is suffering from leucoderma from last 10 years. he is having white patches mostly at open parts of the body. we want to go for some quick treatment in which we can see the quick results. kindly suggest some clincs which can help us out

Answer:

The loss of pigment in the skin may be precipitated by a number of disease processes.  The most important thing we need to do for your husband is to establish the precise diagnosis and move from that point. 

A world authority in pigmentary problems is Dr. James Nordlund.  He has written textbooks and is in the Cincinnati area.  You may wish to consult his textbook on pigmentation and then seek counsel from him. 

Good luck!
