Abstract

A sixty-three-year-old man who had had Hodgkin lymphoma twenty years earlier and laryngeal mucosa associated lymphatic tissue lymphoma (MALToma) two years earlier and had been treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy was admitted to our ward with cough and hemoptysis. Physical examination revealed decreased breath sounds on the left hemitorax incomparison to the right. On chest x-ray and thoracic CT, at the left hilar region, there was a 6x5x5cm-sized, malignant-appearing mass with invasion to the hilar vascular structures. An endobronchial lesion was seen on fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The histology of the biopsy specimen was reported as squamous cell carcinoma. The patient was treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy with the diagnosis of stage 3B lung carcinoma and is still on treatment. We want to present this case with literature reviews, as lymphoma, MALToma and carcinoma in the same patient is extremely rare. (Tur Toraks Der 2010; 11: 187-90)
