A 31-year-old white woman presented with an approximate 13-year history of asymptomatic yellow nonfollicular papules in the supraclavicular area of her neck. Although there was no antecedent history of trauma, she was originally diagnosed as having a “scar.” Because the cutaneous eruption was bilateral, she was subsequently diagnosed as having “hyperactive sebaceous glands.” Her medical history was significant for “unusually aggressive” hemochromatosis requiring monthly phlebotomy.
