Authors report a case of a 75 year old, male patient suffering from an early stage squamous esophageal cancer and a synchronous adenocarcinoma of the lung. The patient was operated on simultaneously at the same setting: the esophageal tumour was taken out by endoscopic mucosectomy, whereas the pulmonary cancer was removed by video assisted minimal thoracotomy. The definitive histological diagnosis was: squamous cell cancer (muscular mucosal cancer) (pT1) of the esophageal lesion and adenosquamous cancer (pT2) of the lung. Authors draw attention on the significance of the early diagnosis of malignant tumours, and in this case minimally invasive endoscopic procedures can be successfully performed.
