In 1951, Favre and Racouchot1 described a disease characterized by nodular elastosis with cysts and comedones. It occurs primarily in the periorbital and malar regions, but can occasionally develop in the neck and retroauricular areas.
We describe such a case, which could be provoked by UV-A1 and UV-B exposure. To our knowledge, this is the first case with a proven provocation by UV irradiation.
