MATAMOROS, E et al. Sebaceous adenoma in a patient with a Muir-Torre syndrome. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.93, n.2, pp. 1-11. ISSN 1851-300X.
Muir-Torre syndrome represents the association of one or more sebaceous tumors, with one or more visceral malignancies and a family history of cancer. We report the case of a 33-year-old man, with a family history of colon cancer, who presented with a scalp tumor. The histopathological diagnosis was sebaceous adenoma. Two lesions were found in the colonoscopy, which corresponded to colon adenocarcionomas. With a compatible personal and family history of cancer and the results of the histopathology, we diagnosed the patient as Muir-Torre syndrome.
