In 27 patients with vitiligo punch biopsies from vitiliginous skin to normal skin and vice versa were performed. Of the vitiligo grafts 69% showed donor dominance and 31% receptor dominance. When normal skin was transplanted 74% showed receptor dominance and 26% donor dominance. In 13 patients (52%) blood screening pointed towards an autoimmune disease.
