Halo nevus (HN) usually occurs as a depigmented halo around a melanocytic nevus.[1],[2] Although the pathogenesis of HN remains unclear, the lesion-infiltrating CD8+ T-lymphocytes are regarded as having a key role in the immune-mediated melanocytic degeneration in this condition.[3],[4],[5] HN has been shown to be associated with many autoimmune diseases, of which vitiligo is the most closely related.[2],[6] Currently, no standard signs are available to identify HN patients at risk of vitiligo, and the relevant data obtained in previous studies are somewhat conflicting.[7],[8],[9] This study aimed to identify factors affecting the presence of vitiligo in HN patients using uni- and multi-variate analyses.
