Abstract

The occurrence of multiple primary neoplasms is not only a diagnostic but also a therapeutic challenge. We aim to present a case of a 74-year-old woman diagnosed with synchronous primary skin melanoma and gallbladder cancer. We showed the diagnostic process, applied treatment, and referenced it to the literature data.
