Systematic reviews on vitiligo

Do you struggle to find the latest evidence about major skin disorders and their treatments? If so our maps of systematic reviews are for you.

This page is a mapping by topic of systematic reviews on vitiligo, based on searches of Pubmed and other sources. Links are given to the PubMed abstract, or the original publication if not in PubMed.

It is important to appraise the quality of systematic reviews before applying to practice—we recommend the AMSTAR tool, which is very quick and easy to use.

We hope you find this resource helpful and welcome feedback.
