Vitiligo is a multifactorial disorder characterized by the loss of functional melanocytes. Even though not a life-threatening disorder, many suffer enormous stigma and psychiatric comorbidities. The treatment of vitiligo still remains a challenge. To get therapeutic success, there has been a continuous search for newer treatment modalities. We hereby report the case series of five patients of stable vitiligo who were resistant to topical therapies. These patients were given intradermal platelet-rich plasma at 4-week interval for a total of four injections. Out of five patients, two showed excellent response and two patients showed moderate response to the treatment, whereas there was no response seen in one patient.
