Author(s): Dr. Suman Bagchi, Dr. Anjali Sahu and Dr. Mousumi Roy
Abstract:
Background: Segmental vitiligo (SV) is a small but unique subset of vitiligo requiring due importance due to its lack of response to medical treatment. The characteristic feature of SV is the distribution pattern of the lesions. Many authors have considered the pattern to be dermatomal or quasidermatomal, blaschkoid or following acupuncture lines. Two cases of SV from rural area of Chhattisgarh described in this literature.

Objective: The objective of this study was to present the role of homoeopathy in segmental vitiligo (SV) through a case series of patients.
Methods: Two cases of SV aged 07 years and 74 years of patients came to the Govt. Homoeopathic Dispensary Jagdalpur (Bastar) and Chhura (Gariaband) respectively. After a thorough case taking, constitutional homoeopathic medicine Silicia and Natrum muriaticum respectively were prescribed.
Results: Both individualized homoeopathic medicines showed a positive role in the treatment of disease segmental vitiligo. The outcome was assessed by photographic images of the skin were presented before and after treatment.
Conclusion: SV should not be ignored will be required to collaborate with dermatologists (if needed) to identify the most appropriate management with homoeopathic medicines depending on the clinical form, extent and stability of the lesions. However, case series/clinical trials are required to substantiate the results of Silicea or Natrum muriaticum in SV. Limitation in this case series was that Vitiligo Symptom Score (VSS) was not recorded.
