Muir-Torre syndrome is characterized by the presence of sebaceous tumors and at least one internal malignancy. Sebaceous carcinoma arising from Bowen’s disease is a very rare phenomenon. We describe a case of Muir-Torre syndrome initially presenting with a sebaceous carcinoma arising from Bowen’s disease on the penis, which led to subsequent discovery of a colonic adenocarcinoma. We report this case to emphasize that the presence of sebacesous neoplasms should alert physicians to the possible coexistence of internal malignancy.
