Muir-Torre Syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterized by the presence of cutaneous tumors, sebaceous adenoma or sebaceous carcinoma type, with or without keratoacanthoma, associated synchronously or metachronically with deep tumors of the same spectrum as Lynch syndrome.
We present here the case of a 47-year-old patient, in whom a MTS was detected following the discovery of a cutaneous lesion of seborrheic carcinoma type.
The discovery of cutaneous lesions of sebaceous adenoma, sebaceous carcinoma or keratoacanthoma coupled with a family history of neoplasia must make suspect a MTS. Since this syndrome is autosomal dominant, family screening should be offered to all members of the family at risk. The follow-up of patients with MTS is essential for life given the risk of cutaneous and /or deep tumor recurrence.
