A multiple primary malignant tumor is a disease mainly encountered in the of the older age groups. Attempts should be made to rule out a second primary malignant neoplasm in the elderly patients with unusual signs and symptoms. We encountered a case of a 67-year-old male with triple primary malignant tumors of the stomach, larynx, and lung. The patient had been treated with a subtotal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer in 1991 and a Laser laryngectomy for the laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma in 2003. In 2005, lung cancer was found with the biopsy revealing an adenosquamous carcinoma. Systemic chemotherapy was performed.
