The distribution of the seboblastic cells and sebocytes as well as transitional cells can vary from within lobules ( see Fig. 52.3 ) Sebaceous epithelioma or sebaceoma has a more irregularly shaped lobules or masses of cells with a </p><p> MuirTorre Syndrome: Dermatological Features </p><p> Liam Zakko , Justin Finch , Marti J.

If MSI is detected, then the proband and family should have cancer surveillance If MSI is not detected but there is a positive family his- tory for MTS, then germline mutation analysis should be performed and, if positive, the proband and family should have cancer surveillance If MSI is not detected and family history is negative for MTS, then no further testing is recommended </p><p> The differential diagnosis should include: Sebaceous hyperplasia Cowdens disease Multiple trichoepitheliomas Basal cell nevus syndrome FergusonSmith syndrome Tuberous sclerosis Extramammary Pagets disease Metastatic renal clear cell carcinoma Balloon cell melanoma </p><p> Metastatic sebaceous carcinoma of the parotid gland Treatment options include [ 1, 6 ] :</p><p> Sebaceous adenoma and epithelioma: excision/ cryosurgery Sebaceous carcinoma: wide excision or Mohs surgery Keratoacanthoma: excision or Mohs surgery Oral isotretinoin alone or in combination with interferon- a may prevent or partially treat cutaneous lesions </p><p> References </p><p> 1.
