Abstract A new method for repigmenting vitiligo by transplantation of in vitro-cultured epidermis bearing melanocytes is described. The artificially grown epidermis was implanted after vitiliginous skin was denuded with liquid nitrogen. Satisfactory repigmentation was attained. This technique offers a new approach for treating refractory vitiligo.
