Are Certain Body Parts More Susceptible to Vitiligo?

It is true that certain body parts are more susceptible to vitiligo. Patients report that vitiligo commonly occurs around body openings (like the ears, mouth, and groin), as well as on the hands, face, elbows, and knees.

On bony areas, such as the hands and feet, repigmentation is difficult. On fleshy areas, such as the face, repigmentation is easier.
