Results:

By subjective assessment, 10% (3) patients showed poor response, 30% (9) showed good response and 60% (18) patients showed excellent response after follow-up at 6 months with good patient satisfaction. By objective assessment 10% (3) patients showed poor response, 13.3% (4) showed fair response and 23.3% (7) patients showed good response, 53.3% (16) patients showed excellent response after follow-up at 6 months. Extent of repigmentation was evaluated as-10% (3) showed poor response, 10% (3) showed fair response and 20% (6) patients showed good response, 60% (18) patients showed excellent response after follow-up at 6 months.

 

Conclusion:

Autologous non-cultured epidermal cell suspension in stable vitiligo is a safe, effective, simple method, with superior quality of repigmentation.
