Abstract: Vitiligo is an acquired immune condition, characterized by the destruction of epidermal melanocytes causing loss of pigmentation of the skin and can cause significant psychological stress and stigmatization. Unlike conventional method of treatment, Homeopathy considers local manifestations to be the outward expression of the inward and spiritual force, which when disturbed expresses itself in external signs and can only be treated by involving the person as a whole. This is a case report of a female patient with the complaint of white patches in the lateral border of right index finger and some spots on the dorsum of the right hand developed after a history of grief. Case with abundance of mental symptoms was repertorized and Homoeopathic medicine Ignatia amara in different potencies was prescribed based on Homoeopathic principles. The disappearance of white patches proved the efficacy of Homoeopathy and its principles in Local maladies.
