The Torre-Muir syndrome belongs to a group of hereditory cancers and expresses itself in the occurrence of cutaneous gland tumors and (often multiple) carcinoma of the colon.

Family investigations revealed another case of complete Torre-Muir syndrome, as well as a remarkable frequency of colon carcinoma in one family branch. Inheritance is autosomal dominant. The characteristic morphological features of the sebaceous gland neoplasias makes an early, often life-saving, diagnosis possible. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Deutsche medizinische Wochenschrift (1946) Pubmed
