An adorable five-year-old girl developed vitiligo all over her body - triggered by a battle with meningitis.

Aria Ellison developed white patches on her face and body after her dark skin began to lose pigmentation.

Doctors believe her vitiligo was brought on by the stress of her fight against bacterial meningitis, which she defied the odds to beat as a baby.

Little Aria was struck down by the deadly disease in April 2014, aged 16 months, and was rushed to hospital where she fought for her life.
