Poikiloderma of Civatte was first described in 1923 by a French dermatologist and is caused by a combination of skin thinning, broken capillaries and pigmentation.
Poikiloderma of Civatte is the result of chronic sun damage and affects both men and women with excessive sun exposure. It is often found on the cheeks, the sides of the neck and may extend down to the chest and/or décolletage.
