This detailed and user-friendly guideline for the diagnosis and management of
vitiligo in children and adults aims to give high quality clinical advice, based on
the best available evidence and expert consensus, taking into account patient
choice and clinical expertise.
The guideline was devised by a structured process and is intended for use by
dermatologists and as a resource for interested parties including patients. Recom-
mendations and levels of evidence have been graded according to the method
developed by the Scottish Inter-Collegiate Guidelines Network. Where evidence
was lacking, research recommendations were made.
