Answer

Examples of nonsegmental vitiligo include the following (see the image below):

  • Focal vitiligo: This is characterized by one or more macules in a limited area that do not follow a segmental distribution.

  • Generalized vitiligo: This follows a nonsegmental distribution and is more widespread than localized or focal vitiligo.
