Abstract

Introduction

The occurrence of multiple primary cancers is rare. Only a few cases and patient reviews of an association of triple malignancy have been reported.

Case presentation

We report here a case of a 78-year-old Moroccan woman presenting initially with a synchronous double malignancy, the first in her cervix and the second in her skin. Our patient was treated with radiation therapy for both tumors and remained in good control for 17 years, when she developed a metastatic disease from a neuroendocrine carcinoma of an unknown primary site.

Conclusions

Although the association of multiple primary cancers can be considered a rare occurrence, improving survival in cancer patients has made this situation more frequent.
