  • Background.  Vitiligo is an acquired idiopathic and polygenic disorder with progressive depigmentation of circumscribed patches. Its exact pathogenesis is unknown. The CD4 gene plays an important role in the cell‐mediated immune response and its association with type 1 diabetes mellitus, which is an autoimmune disease, has been previously reported.
