Summary

Abstract
Vitiligo is a dermatosis that alters the quality of life, self-esteem and body image We evaluated, through a review of the literature sexual disorders (SD) in patients with vitiligo.
Few studies were available. Those most likely to have "sexual difficulties", among persons with vitiligo, would be those with low self-esteem. Relational problems with the opposite sex are mainly related to feelings of shame and embarrassment. Large depigmented skin area and genital involvement seem predictive of the occurrence of sexual disorders.
All items of the sexual function (desire, excitement, vaginal lubrication / erection, ability to reach orgasm, and satisfaction from orgasm) may be affected.
