Abstract

Vitiligo is characterized by the selective destruction of melanocytes resulting in patches of skin depigmentation. Vitiligo is a therapeutic challenge. Eyebrows, eyelids and genital vitiligo are a therapeutic dilemma, especially in children. The possible side effects of topical corticosteroids and the difficulties for choosing any other adequate treatment option are a major concern. We present two children, one with vitiligo of the eyelids and the other with genital vitiligo, both treated with pimecrolimus 1% cream with almost full repigmentation of the lesions, showing pimecrolimus could be an adequate option for the treatment of vitiligo for these special vitiligo areas in children.
