In brief: Various

Skin pigmentation can be affected by heriditary disorders, drugs, infections, inflammation, sun exposure, skin cancers, immune diseases or even tumors of internal organs.
You are probably referring to vitiligo, which is essentially a auto-immune condition or to albinism, which is genetic.
