Vitiligo is a common depigmented skin disorder that is caused by selective destruction of melanocytes. Since melanin is a unique light absorbing and ultraviolet filtering pigment, it is generally accepted that its main function resides in the protection of skin cells against the deleterious effect of ultraviolet rays UVR. Occurrence of skin cancer in long lasting vitiligo is rare despite multiple evidences of DNA damage. The aim of the study was to detect the expression of P53 and Mdm2 proteins in both depigmented as well as normally pigmented skin of vitiligo patients and to compare it to control subjects suffering from non melanoma skin cancer NMSC.
