A previously healthy 15-year-old boy presented with asymptomatic red-brown pigmented lesions on his right cheek. The lesions had appeared at the age of 10 years, beginning in the right preauricular area and gradually spreading to the right cheek (Figure 1) and the right side of the neck. He had no personal history of atopic dermatitis, hyperhidrosis, photosensitivity, or pruritus and no family history of similar skin lesions.
