Some people with Lynch syndromean inherited condition that predisposes a person to colon cancerare also at greater risk for developing certain skin cancers, a condition known as Muir-Torre syndrome.

Albert de la Chapelle, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues at The Ohio State University in Columbus investigated how often Lynch syndrome patients were diagnosed with skin tumors related to Muir-Torre syndrome. The study included 152 Lynch syndrome patients from 50 different families.

Fourteen people in the study, each from different families, were diagnosed with Muir-Torre syndrome. Families that carried particular mutations in one of the DNA mismatch repair genes were more likely to have a family member with Muir-Torreassociated skin lesions than those with other mutations in the DNA mismatch repair genes.

On the basis of our results, we suggest that Muir-Torre syndrome be defined as a variant of Lynch syndrome that is characterized by mutations in all [mismatch repair] genes. We propose that Muir-Torre syndromeassociated skin lesions be included as a component tumor of the Lynch syndrome and screened for accordingly, the authors write.
