• Multiple cutaneous sebaceous neoplasms with or without keratoacanthomas are associated with internal low-grade malignant neoplasms, usually of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (Torre syndrome). We describe a 75-year-old man with multiple sebaceous adenomas, sebaceous epitheliomas, and keratoacanthomas in association with multiple colonic polyps. In one polypoid lesion, an adenocarcinoma was noted histologically. Although GI tract carcinoma is clearly established with the Torre syndrome, the occurrence of multiple GI polyps has not been recognized to our knowledge.
