Carney complex is a rare syndrome characterized by myxomas, skin pigmentation and endocrine adenomas. We report a case of Carney complex in a 26‐year‐old man who exhibited skin myxomas on the buttocks, abdomen and neck, and spotty skin pigmentation on the lips. Past medical history revealed that surgical excisions of heart myxomas had been performed twice and calcifications of the testes had been noted.
