Chandrasekar R* Sivagami B Kumanan R

ABSTRACT

Leucoderma is an autoimmune disorder, about 1-2% of the world population is affected by Leucoderma. Leucoderma is only a substitute name for vitiligo. Leucoderma, a Latin word, is caused by the destruction of melanocytes; the cells which are responsible for producing the white skin color. Vitiligo is an example of hypo pigmentation caused by loss of pigments due to absence of melanocytes. Leucoderma is a chronic disorder it can be controlled but cannot be cured. Even extensive treatments are available for Leucoderma, they do not work for a majority of people. This paper gives an overview of the natural herbal treatments available for Leucoderma.
