Moon facies, or moon face, is a medical sign in which the face develops a rounded appearance due to fat deposits on the sides of the face. It is often associated with Cushing's syndrome or steroid treatment (especially corticosteroids), which has led to it being known as Cushingoid facies ("Cushings-like face").
