The Authors report the case of a 78 year old woman affected with two synchronous primary cancers (epidermoid bronchial and rectal adenocarcinoma); 16 years previously, after the discovery of a thymoma, she underwent thymectomy. Thus, the discussion issue is if post-thymectomy extra-thymic malignancies are to be considered just a simple coincidence or a true syndrome.
