In brief: Liver spots

Liver spots are the result of the skin's defence mechanism against over-exposure to the sun.
When a person has been in the sun for a long period, unprotected, the pigments pool to some spots to protect the skin, thus leaving an uneven brown patch. Liver spots are not associated with the liver.
