Dermatology Surgery >> Melanocyte Culters
 
Many patients with vitiligo fail to repigment after ultraviolet light therapy. Surgical alternatives include skin grafts (split or punch) and cell culture implantation (keratinocytes with melanocytes or melanocytes alone). Melanocyte culture transplantation produced high rates of repigmentation of stable localized vitiligo in patients resistant to ultraviolet light therapy. Of course, these patients had some favorable characteristics: The ability to dramatically expand the supply of a patient's own melanocytes to cover large vitiliginous areas is very appealing. Unfortunately, melanocyte culture requires a specialized lab because melanocytes are not easy to grow in culture, which restricts this treatment to tertiary referral centers and patients who can afford the high cost.
