Summary of "Muir-Torre syndrome: sebaceous carcinoma concurrent with colon cancer in a kidney transplant recipient; a case report."

Sebaceous carcinoma is a rare but progressive malignant skin cancer, and the incidence is approximately five times higher in post-transplant patients than in people who have not received kidney transplants. Sebaceous carcinoma is sometimes found concurrently with visceral cancers and a genetic abnormality, Muir-Torre syndrome. We report the case of a female kidney transplant recipient with sebaceous carcinoma concurrent with colon cancer 10 years after transplantation.
