A coincidentally occurring papillary cancer of the thyroid in two sisters is discussed. No clinical. biochemical or chromosomal changes were found in these cases which could have shown any inheritable feature. It is concluded that, in contrast with the previous data, the simultaneous manifestation is not a peculiar feature but a fortuitous appearance.
