The only one I can think of off the top of my head was a book I didn't enjoy at all--BEAUTY by Susan Wilson. I thought it might be a good retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but it was really sappy and I hated it. The deformity comes in as one of the main characters has a genetic disease that disfigures his whole body. Not really YA, but there you go.
