Abstract

We report a case of synchronous tumors consisted of bronchial carcinoid and adenocarcinoma of the lung. A 58-year-old female was referred to our hospital after screening, because an abnormal shadow was noted in the right lung on her computed tomography (CT) of the chest. CT scans showed a peripheral pulmonary mass in the right middle lobe and a nodule around the right lower lobe bronchus. The nodular lesion like swollen lymph node was diagnosed as bronchial carcinoid originated in B6 by bronchoscopy. The pulmonary mass was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma by using core needle biopsy during operation. Right middle and lower bilobectomy and mediastinal lymph node dissection were performed. Coincidence of a bronchial carcinoid and an adenocarcinoma of the same side of the lung is a rare occurrence.
