Favre-Racouchot Syndrome

Favre-Racouchot is a well-defined syndrome of nodular elastosis with comedones and cysts.  It occurs on the malar and periorbital skin and consists of thickened yellow plaques  studded with comedones and follicular cysts.  It is a result of chronic sun damage, much in the same way that cutis rhomboidalis nuchae, Poikiloderma of Civatte and garden variety solar elastosis all result from too much sun.  Since everyone got this one, I will instead pose a bonus question:  Who (besides me) is the King of the Mountains today?
