The correct answer is A. Parry Romberg Syndrome.

Hemifacial atrophy or Parry Romberg syndrome consists of slow progressive atrophy of soft tissues of essentially half the face, characterized by progressive wasting of subcutaneous fat, accompanied by atrophy of skin, cartilage, bone, and muscle. This syndrome is accompanied usually by contralateral Jacksonian epilepsy, trigeminal neuralgia, and changes in hair and eyes. It is also reported that hemifacial atrophy is a form of localized scleroderma which is supported by its concurrence with scleroderma.
