Multiple primary cancers are generally formed by double or triple cancers. Quadruple (four primaries) cancer-especially synchronously determined-have rarely been reported. In this report, a case with synchronously diagnosed insitu and focally invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the lip, squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, hepatocellular carcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder was presented. It has been concluded that clinicians should be aware of the possible presence of multiple primary tumors in patients with cancer.
