Abstract

Abstract The presence of vitiligo in association with leukoderma centrifugum acquisitum (Sutton Sr.) is very uncommon,1 and might be attributed to more than a mere coincidence. The following case is reported because of the rarity of vitiligo with leukoderma centrifugum acquisitum and to further stimulate our interest in the broad field of melanogenesis and leukoderma. Report of a Case Child, aged 10 years, white. Parents have been aware of a pigmented nevus on her right scapular area as well as smaller pigmented nevi on her chest and left thigh all of her life. However, since May, 1956, the "mole" on the right scapular area began to enlarge, became pink in color and crusted, and was surrounded by a gradual enlarging area of leukoderma (Fig. 1). Coincidentally a small halo of leukoderma appeared over the small pigmented nevus on her mid left thigh posteriorly. Since August, 1956, new lesions of References 1. Fitzpatrick, T. B.: Personal communication to the author. 2. Hyde, J. N.: A Rare Form of Vitiligo, Society Transactions , J. Cutan. Dis. 24:84-85, 1906. 3. Sutton, R.
