Asia is geographically, racially and culturally diverse. This leads to variations in the skin types and pigmentary disorders affecting the Asian skin. This review briefly outlines the various hypopigmentary disorders affecting the Asian skin. Several of these disorders are idiopathic in origin, whereas some are due to autoimmune mechanisms, infections or secondary to inflammation of the skin. Hypopigmentary disorders often have a significant psychological impact. The treatment of these disorders is diverse and depends on the cause of hypopigmentation.
