Dermatography, a refined elaborate tattooing technique, has been used successfully in 52 patients suffering from postburn depigmentation. Materials and methods are simple and safe. Over a 5-year follow-up no adverse reactions or complications were noticed. The cosmetic results were very statisfactory both to the surgeons and to the patients. Dermatography is suggested as an alternative for treating localized achromasia, particularly when other medical therapeutic attempts have failed in repigmenting this often disfiguring condition.
