Vitiligo is a skin disorder characterized by white depigmented patches. Though this disorder has no significant physical consequences and hence is not life-threatening but the social and psychological stigma attached with it makes it one of the most life-altering diseases. Various treatment modalities available in contemporary system of medicine but, these are time consuming and some even have adverse effects. So, it becomes a challenge to provide effective and safe treatment protocol for vitiligo. Numerous studies have been carried out in Ayurveda for the management of vitiligo which is comparable to Shvitra. The current attempt has tried to review works done in Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar. Total twenty three studies on Shvitra were reviewed. It is observed that internal medicines as well as external applications are also useful in this condition. This review helps the scholars for better treatment modalities for management of disease.
