Vitiligo


Description:Group B has a increased incidence of vitiligo. However, a significant association was observed with the MN system with an excess of homozygotes and of the M gene in vitiligo. (1) ABO blood group frequencies of 1000 vitiligo patients were studied and compared with those of blood donors and local population. The relative risk of O was significantly reduced in patients in comparison with blood donors but not with local population. (2)
