       A 9-year-old boy presented with honey-comb like atrophy on both cheeks. The face was symmetrically involved by numerous closely crowded small areas of atrophy separated by narrow ridges, producing a cribriform or honeycomb surface. He had no associated other diseases, such as congenital heart block, other cardiac anomalies, neurofibromatosis, oligophrenia, or Down syndrome.
