Resumen

El vitiligo es un trastorno adquirido del pigmento de etiología desconocida, que se caracteriza clínicamente por máculas acrómicas de distribución variable, secundarias a la pérdida de melanocitos funcionales en la epidermis. Existen múltiples opciones de tratamiento, con el fin de lograr la mejor respuesta clínica con mínimos efectos secundarios. En la actualidad, los estudios han demostrado que la fototerapia con radiación ultravioleta de tipo B de banda estrecha es el tratamiento de elección en pacientes con vitiligo moderado a grave. En esta revisión abordaremos las diferentes opciones terapéuticas para el vitiligo basados en la información disponible, haciendo énfasis en el uso de la fototerapia.
