Autologous bone marrow was applied in two patients with chronic non healing raw areas with the objective of healing them. One was a case of postburn raw area thigh and other was donor raw area thigh. These patients had earlier had undergone conventional measures such as repeated skin grafting unsuccessfully. Following application of autologous bone marrow, there was clinical evidence of healing and histological evidence of incorporation of bone marrow cells leading to formation of neodermis with epithelialization of the raw areas. These patients were followed up regularly for 1½ years .The results indicate that topically applied bone marrow cells can modulate wound healing positively.
