New eruptions of multiple sebaceous adenoma can sometimes be associated with a visceral carcinoma. Adenocarcinomas of the colon, stomach, duodenum, hematologic system, genitourinary tract, endometrium, and larynx that are associated with multiple sebaceous adenomas are termed Muir-Torre syndrome. The carcinomas associated with Muir-Torre syndrome have a more favorable prognosis than nonsyndromic carcinomas.
