Abstract:  Two thousand consecutive children were analyzed in a 2-year period to establish a clinical and epidemiologic profile of vitiligo in Jordan; 71 had vitiligo, with the prevalence increasing with age (0.45% <1 yr, 1% aged 1–5 yrs, 2.1% aged 5–12 yrs). Nonsegmental-type vitiligo was seen in 67 of the patients (92.9%).
