Abstract

A case of quadruple cancer is reported. A 74-year-old female was admitted because of surgery for left breast cancer. Abdominal echography showed a mosaic patterned mass of the liver and a solid tumor with central necrosis at the left kidney. Echographic diagnosis was hepatoma and Grawitz's tumor. All the tumors were justified as being operable. Progressive cystorrhagia which was due to radiation cystitis after radiotherapy for uterine carcinoma could not be controlled. Autopsy diagnosis was a quadruple carcinoma composed of solid tubular carcinoma of left breast, left renal carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the uterus.
