Muir Torre Syndrome (MTS) is a rare syndrome complex of association of multiple sebaceous skin tumors with visceral malignancies. Till date a total of 205 cases have been reported in the world literature and to the best of our knowledge this is the first case report from the Indian subcontinent. Multiple, synchronous and metachronous, tiny sebaceous lesions is a hallmark of MTS along with multiple primary carcinomas at different sites, the commonest being gastro-intestinal tract cancers. The visceral cancers occur at a relatively young age. They are low-grade, non-aggressive and have a good prognosis. Awareness of this rare entity is essential. A case report of a 55-year-old male presenting with multiple sebaceous skin tumors, colonic cancer and positive family history in younger brother is presented.
