Muir Torre syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant cancer-predisposing syndrome characterized by the occurrence of sebaceous gland neoplasms and/or keratoacanthomas associated with visceral malignancies that belong to the spectrum of hereditary non polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), i.e., tumors of gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts. Hepatobiliary malignancy in association with Muir Torre syndrome has rarely been reported. Here, we describe a case of Muir Torre syndrome associated with an hepatocellular-carcinoma in a patient with a non-cirrhotic liver and an HNPCC-family with multiple cases of hepatocellular carcinoma.
