Favre Racouchot, the comedones are associated with solar elastosis as Romualdo said

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Favre Racouchot syndrome[size=3][color=#000000] as Romualdo and Mona[/color][/size][/font]

[left][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=black][size=2]Multiple open and closed comedones are present in the periorbital and temporal areas. Rarely, the lateral neck, postauricular areas, and forearms may be involved. Severely actinic damaged skin with yellowish discoloration, yellowish nodules, atrophy, wrinkles, and furrows are present. The eruption is usually bilaterally symmetrical, although one side may predominate, particularly if that side experienced greater sun exposure. No inflammation is present, unlike the comedones seen in acne vulgaris.[/size][/color][/font][/left]
