MONTI, FC et al. Sebaceomas: report of two cases. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2017, vol.98, n.2. ISSN 1851-300X.

Sebaceomas are infrequent tumors originated from the sebaceous annexes. They usually develop in the third decade, more frequently in the head and neck. Its denomination is controversial, presenting both histopathological and clinical characteristics  similar  to  other  entities, with  sebaceous  differentiation. The prognosis of the condition is good, being its treatment the surgical removal. Though, its clinical relevance is established by its frequent association with the Muir-Torre syndrome, so that, in the presence of this neoplasm, it is necessary to rule out occult visceral neoplasms. We present two cases of sebaceomas in different locations that until this moment did not present associated neoplasm.

Keywords : sebaceoma; sebomatrixoma; sebaceous epithelioma.
