Carcinoma is an extremely rare malignant tumour of sebaceous glands. Extra ocular variant is still more rare compared to its ocular counterpart accounting for only one fourth of all cases. Delay in diagnosis is common as it mimics a variety of tumours, both benign and malignant, however it is aggressive. Treatment is by surgery in most of the cases. Here we present a case of 39 year old female with sebaceous carcinoma of four months history in the right arm. She underwent disarticulation of the joint for the same and recovered favorably. She had earlier underwent trans-hiatal oesophago-gastrectomy for squamous cell carcinoma involving lower third of oesophagus, one year back. Both the tumours having the characteristic epidermal component is interesting.

Key words: Sebaceous carcinoma, epidermal carcinoma.
