Abstract

Multiple primary malignancies are no longer rare in clinical practice. The incidence of multiple primary malignant neoplasms is the consequence of progress in oncological treatment and diagnostic methods, as well as the higher overall survival rate and life expectancy rate. We present a case of a patient who synchronously developed four malignancies: cervical cancer, breast cancer, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) and an olfactory groove meningioma. This case proves that the diagnosis of the cervical cancer does not exclude the occurrence of other malignancies. It also emphasizes the fact that every case of uterine cervical cancer with atypical clinical presentation should be thoroughly analyzed to avoid diagnostic mistakes, which in turn may worsen the prognosis.
