Abstract

Four primary cancers in one patient are fairly rare. Here we present a case of four primary tumors in such a patient. These cancers were cervical carcinoma and lung carcinoma, which occurred synchronously, and basal cell carcinoma of the skin and rectal carcinoma which occurred metachronously. A successful resection of two synchronous and two metachronous cancers, which has never previously been reported in this specific combination, is described.
