We report on 14 patients suffering from extentise Vitiligo, who underwent phototherapy with UVB.

After 12 months of treatment, 8 (57.1%) of the patients showed repigmentation of more than 75%.

Especially the patients with facial lesions of the skin types V and VI achieved a nearly complete and cosmetically very satisfying repigmentation.
