Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


With the wide use of diagnostic imaging modalities, multiple primary malignancies frequently occur; different associations of malignancies have been reported. We describe the case of a primary mucinous adenocarcinoma of large bowel synchronous with three primary poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas of ileum. This type of association has not been described yet; since computed tomography increasingly is proving to be highly accurate in detection of colon cancer, this technique is recommended in such patients.
