    Correct answer:

    Hypothyroidism.

    This is a typical facial appaerance in hypothyroidism. The most striking feature here is the blank expression, lacking sparkle. When suspecting hypothyroidism, also look for pallor, coarse / brittle / diminished hair (scalp, axillary and pubic) and coarse features (puffy lids). The signs are often subtle, so have a low threshold for measuring TSH.
