According to the previous reports, segmental vitiligo usually shows a poor response to phototherapy. Here, we report two cases of recent onset segmental vitiligo that showed good or excellent response to targeted phototherapy in combination with drug therapy. These findings suggest that segmental vitiligo can be improved by combination therapy if its onset is recent.
