ABSTRACTSebaceous hyperplasia is a benign tumor of sebaceous glands which are common in general population. The form of presentation multiple and eruptive is very unusual. Herein we present a patient diagnosed with multiple eruptive sebaceous hyperplasia, this case is different to those reported in the literature on the subject because of the patient suffers multiple sclerosis and her treatment consist of corticosteroids and gabapentin. We discuss if the sebaceous hyperplasia may be related to direct effects of drugs or immunosuppression secondary to them.
