Combination of short-pulsed CO2 laser resurfacing and cultured epidermal sheet autografting in the treatment of vitiligo: a preliminary report.

Cultured epidermal autografting has been employed in a variety of clinical treatments including vitiligo management. In this study, we successfully treated 2 patients with vitiligo using a short-pulsed CO2 laser and by grafting the autologous cultured epidermis. Small pieces of uninvolved skin (2 x 1 cm) were taken for cultivation from a pudendal or axillary area and were expanded into 2 pieces of epidermal sheets 100 cm. Before grafting, the lesions were abraded superficially using a short-pulsed CO2 laser with a computerized pattern generator. After successful grafting, repigmentation was visible within 1 to 2 months. One year after grafting, the skin color was almost the same as that of the surrounding normal skin. Thus, the combination of short-pulsed CO2 laser resurfacing and cultured epidermal grafting is a powerful option for treating an asymmetric and wide vitiliginous lesion.
