Michael Jackson has suffered from a disease that causes white patches to appear over one's face and body. It is widely believed that he underwent treatments to lighten all skin to the shade of the affected areas.
The condition that Michael Jackson suffers from is called Vitiligo:
"In the mid-1980s, Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo and lupus; the latter is in remission in Jackson's case, and both illnesses make him sensitive to sunlight. The treatments he uses for his condition further lighten his skin tone, and, with the application of pancake makeup to even out blotches, he can appear very pale."
"Vitiligo (pronounced /vɪtɨˈlaɪɡoʊ/, also known as leukoderma) is a chronic relatively common dermatologic disorder that causes depigmentation in patches of skin. It occurs when the melanocytes, the cells responsible for skin pigmentation, die or become unable to function. The precise pathogenesis, or cause, of vitiligo is complex and not yet fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors. The population incidence worldwide is considered to be between 1% and 2%. There are two forms of vitiligo, non-segmental and segmental, with non-segmental vitiligo being far more prevalent than its segmental counterpart."
