PERSON: boy (teenager).
DESCRIPTION: vitiligo in the left hand, hand almost bleached.
APPROACH: purely experimental hypnosis; hypnotic attempt to stimulate locally the nervous system, in the hope of restoring melanocytes' functionality; abreactions during deep trance; presence of unconscious motivations for having and keeping vitiligo; total opposition to any investigation about those motivations; work interrupted at the 5th session after about 3 months because of an evident lack of results; final training for auto-hypnosis at home.
RESULT: re-pigmentation (of the hand) almost absent during the hypnotic work, but complete after about 8 months.
UPDATE (1 year): still some persistent feelings of nervous activity in the left hand; re-pigmentation complete and stable.
