Does Vitiligo Cause Arthritis?

crutchfield dermatology blogQuestion:

Thanks for the great information on your website. I suffer from Vitiligo and was hoping you could help me with a quick question I can not find an answer for. My hands have been bothering me a bit with arthritic symptoms. Is arthritis a consequential condition that may develop from Vitilgo? Are there other common consequential injuries as well that I may develop or be concerned about?

Dr. Crutchfield’s Answer:

Arthritis and vitiligo are not connected. You should see your primary doctor to evaluate joint pain. Vitligo can develop in areas of injury or cuts on the skin.
