Overview

What is Muir-Torre syndrome?

Muir-Torre syndrome is a part of a family of hereditary cancer conditions. The most common of these is called Lynch syndrome, which causes an increased risk for colon, uterine, ovarian, small intestinal, biliary tract, and pancreatic cancer. People with Muir-Torre syndrome have increased risks for these cancer and also have skin tumors. The skin tumors associated with this condition include sebaceous gland tumors (tumors that occur in the glands that produce an oily substance called sebum) and keratocanthomas of the skin (rapidly growing tumors that occur usually on sun-exposed areas of the skin).
