Özet

The Muir-Torre Syndrome (MTS) in humans is characterized by the coexistence of at least: one cutaneous tumour (sebaceous gland tumour or keratoacanthoma) together with at least one visceral malignant tumour and was not described in animal species. This report describes a case of a sebaceous carcinoma in the skin associated with a complex carcinoma of the mammary gland in a dog. Consequently, as in human medicine, this case can be considered as a MTS described in a dog for the first time.
