Abstract

© 2019 S. Karger AG, Basel. Background/Aims: We present a case of 2 concomitant tumours, i.e., a sebaceous carcinoma (SC) and a small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), in the lacrimal gland of a patient with Muir-Torre syndrome. Methods: Clinical history, orbital examination, diagnostic biopsy, excisional biopsy, and histopathologic analysis were utilized. Results: An 89-year-old female presented to the eye casualty with corneal ulcer, anterior uveitis, proptosis, and restricted ocular motility. She has a clinical history of breast cancer, colon carcinoma, and SC of the eyelid, which had been resected completely 2 years before. Clinical examination, imaging, and diagnostic biopsy confirmed orbital SC recurrence. Exenteration and subsequent histopathologic analysis of the specimen revealed lymphocytic infiltrates consistent with SLL within the lacrimal gland. Conclusion: We report for the first time a case of a patient with Muir-Torre syndrome who developed an orbital recurrent SC with an incidental finding of a lacrimal gland B non-Hodgkin lymphoma consistent with SLL. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of this coexistence of multiple cancer types in patients with sebaceous carcinoma and Muir-Torre syndrome.
