These changes include wrinkles, atrophy, cutis rhomboidalis nuchae, yellow papules and plaques of the face, colloid milium, telangiectasis, diffuse erythema, diffuse brown pigmentation, ecchymoses, freckles, actinic lentigo, nevi, Favre-Racouchot syndrome, poikiloderma of Civatte, actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, actinic lichen planus, actinic reticuloid, porphyria cutanea tarda, and erythropoietic protoporphyria. In particular, we describe the clinical appearance of the benign changes caused by chronic sunlight exposure.
