Abstract

vitiligo is a volume damaging skin disease caused by the destruction of epidermal melanocytes (MC). Psychological factors are not only one of the predisposing factors for more patients with vitiligo, but also bring great mental pressure to patients and their families, reduce their quality of life, and are not conducive to the rehabilitation of vitiligo. This paper reviews the psychological investigation in patients with vitiligo by consulting and summarizing the literature to improve the clinical understanding of the psychological state of patients and their families. Ensuing more appropriate psychotherapy and interventions should improve the cure rate of vitiligo as well as the psychological state of patients and their families.
