What Are These Yellow-Orange Plaques on the Face?

derm dx december An 82-year-old otherwise healthy woman presented to our dermatology clinic with skin discolorations on her face for the past 1 year. She had no relevant past personal medical or family history. Physical examination showed poorly-demarcated yellow-orange plaques present bilaterally over the zygomatic and periorbital regions in an almost symmetric distribution (Figures 1A and B). Plaques covered an area of 3 × 5 cm on the left side and 1.5 × 6 cm on the right side, and were soft in consistency.
