Differential Diagnosis


Hori's nevus is an acquired nevus of Ota-like macules  characterized by bilateral blue-gray to gray-brown macules of the zygomatic area (less often the forehead, upper outer eyelids and nose). Mainly Chinese or Japanese women ranging in age from 20 to 70 years have been reported with this condition. The eye and oral mucosa are not involved. Some times it may also be misdiagnosed as melasma.
