Mentions: On examination, the face of the patient appeared asymmetrical, bilaterally, with a growth on the right side of the face. The skin over the right side of her face was thickened and hyperpigmented, with a soft and loose hanging overgrowth. There were numerous small and large, sessile and pedunculated nodular growths localized on the right side of her neck, with dark-colored underlying skin. The skin over the right cheek and chin area showed coffee-colored pigmentation (café-au-lait spots) [Figure 2].
