1. Tyrosinase metabolic tract. From histogenesis point, the melanocyte and nerve cells all are the derivatives of the exoderm, the melanocyte synthesize the melanin under the effect of tyrosine, the nerve cells synthesize the catecholamines under the effect of tyrosine. The catecholamines very like dopa in the structure. When people under the stress state, the sympathetic nerve excited, the catecholamines synthesis increased, it will inhibit the melanin synthesis.

2. Nerve, endocrine and immunity tract. The research indicates that the mental stress can influence the central nerve system and immunity system interaction. This part realized by the hormone and neuropeptide. Many clinical cases shows that the vitiligo patients often accompany with different endocrine disorder and immunity function disorder, so we can indicates that the mental factor induce vitiligo very likely through the nerve-endocrine system induce immunity system disorder.
