Doctors for Piebaldism in Vijayawada
ratings and reviews)
Piebaldism is a condition characterized by the absence of cells called melanocytes in certain areas of the skin and hair. Melanocytes produce the pigment melanin, which contributes to hair, eye, and skin color. The absence of melanocytes leads to patches of skin and hair that are lighter than normal. Approximately 90 percent of affected individuals have a white section of hair near their front hairline (a white forelock). The eyelashes, the eyebrows, and the skin under the forelock may also be unpigmented. People with piebaldism usually have other unpigmented patches of skin, typically appearing symmetrically on both sides of the body. There may be spots or patches of pigmented skin within or around the borders of the unpigmented areas.
HOW IS PIEBALDISM DIAGNOSED?
An Endocrinologist diagnoses Piebaldism by conducting a biopsy and simply examining the skin by the naked eye.
HOW IS PIEBALDISM TREATED?
There is no treatment for the unpigmented patches or hair. People affected with Piebaldism need to protect their skin when they go out in the sun to avoid damage to skin. Treatments like dermabrasion and skin grafting are known to show some effect on Piebaldism
