Despite advanced research, medicine is still trying to figure out the exact cause of white patches. There are numerous theories, the first theory is one of mistaken identity wherein the immune system mistakes the pigment cells for foreign bodies and destroys them. The 2nd theory is where the cells self destruct themselves. Whatever the cause, the course of the disease is certain and that is the destruction of pigment cells. Children of parents where one or both have white patches are at a fraction of a higher risk than the general population. Even with no family history for generations, any normal & fit person too stands a chance of suffering from it.
