We present the case of a 70-year-old man who previously had a left upper lobectomy for nonsmall cell lung carcinoma that subsequently developed into small cell carcinoma, which was successfully treated, and finally he had a right upper lobectomy that revealed three synchronous lung malignancies. We were unable to find a previous case report with a total of five separate lung malignancies with a combination of metachronous and synchronous tumors. This case demonstrates the importance of screening after the diagnosis and treatment of lung carcinoma. (C) 2004 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
