Abstract

The occurrence of second primary carcinomas (SPC) in aerodigestive tract is well recognized in the literature especially the lung and esophagus. The tumors are described according to the chronological presentation as simultaneous, synchronous and metachronous. Occurrence of second primary malignancy can be missed in early examination if they are not actively looked for. We are reporting the first and extremely rare presentation of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) presented simultaneously with laryngeal carcinoma with literature review and stress on the importance of pan-endoscopy in the management.
