INTRODUCTION: Synchronous primary lung cancer (SPLC) is defined as two or more lung tumors detected at the same time without a tumor free period. The estimated incidence of SPLC is reported to be 0.5 % of all the patients with lung cancer. We report the case of a 72-year-old female found to have two bilateral upper lobe masses. Histopathologic examination of the left upper lobe mass revealed adenocarcinoma where as that of the right upper lobe mass revealed small cell lung carcinoma.
