The QOL of patients living with vitiligo may result in behavioral and psychological problems, according to a study published in Psychology Research and Behavioral Management. Researchers investigated psychological symptoms in adult patients with vitiligo from a dermatology clinic using the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI), Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90), Social Avoidance and Distress Scale (SADS), and Medical Coping Modes Questionnaire (MCMQ). Average DLQI score measured in the third level, at 7.56 ± 6.11. Scores for both the SCL-90 and SADS were significantly higher than the norm. However, MCMQ scores measured considerably lower than the norm, although the avoiding and yielding scores were notably higher than the norms. “We should actively improve the psychological health status and behavior of patients and multidisciplinary treatment strategies and education about vitiligo should be given to the patients,” the study authors wrote.
