One hundred and ten cases of stable cutaneous achromia constituted the sample population, of which 67 were females and 43 males. Age ranged between 6 and 71 years. A total of 1742 grafts were placed over 177 lesions on 29 regions and the cases were followed up to a maximum period of 2 years. The extent of maximum pigment spread (MPS) was noted in different regions of the body. It was observed that exposed parts exhibited better outcome vis-a-vis covered and shadowed part. MPS ranged between 0 to 10 mm., with an overall average of approximately 5.5mm.
