Abstract

Introduction: Although the exact etiopathogenesis of vitiligo is unknown, the autoimmunity hypothesis is much in evidence. The autologous serum skin test (ASST) and autologous plasma skin test (APST) are in vivo methods used in the diagnosis of some autoimmune diseases, which are easy and inexpensive to perform.
