Title:
Vitiligo and radiotherapy: the Koebner phenomenon demonstrated in patients with vitiligo undergoing radiotherapy for carcinoma of the breast.
Authors:
Levine, Edward; Ribeiro, G
Abstract:
We report the case histories of two patients with vitiligo who developed depigmentation of the treated skin area following radiotherapy for carcinoma of the breast. They illustrate the Koebner phenomenon, whereby depigmentation occurs as a trauma response in patients with vitiligo.
