Background and Design: Vitiligo and alopecia areata (AA) can lead to stigma, shame, and embarrassment, and all of which can potentially result in social stress and poor quality of life (QoL). The incidence of Type D personality is higher in those with psychosomatic diseases. This study aimed to investigate the incidence of Type D personality in patients with vitiligo and AA in a Turkish population.
