BACKGROUND Vitiligo is an acquired pigment disorder characterized by areas of depigmented skin resulting from the loss of epidermal melanocytes. Recently, several investigations have documented the benefits of excimer phototherapy (e.g., using the 308-nm excimer laser or the 308-nm excimer lamp) for the treatment of vitiligo.
