The present study, spread over past four decades of experience gathered after operating 8000 stable vitiligo patients, reaffirms the value of thin Thiersch’s grafts in treating this disfiguring disease. Under experienced hands, the success rate can be over 95%. However, selection of the patient, quality of the graft and the state of the donor and recipient sites can affect the final outcome.
