Abstract

Patients with multiple malignant primary neoplasms (MPMN) are often described as synchronous or metachronous tumors based on their chronology of presentation. Based on our literature search, there has been no reported case of a patient with triple primary malignant neoplasms consisting a combination of kidney, rectum and pancreas metachronously. Here we reported a patient diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma in 2004, and the other two neoplasms were observed during follow-up in 2001 and 2015 respectively. He received surgical treatment for renal and rectum neoplasm and chemotherapy was given for the pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Clinicians and scientists need to emphasis on the importance of the regular physical examination and timely follow-up for older cancer patients because of being at higher risk of second primaries.
