Synchronous occurrence of glioblastoma multiforme and esophageal adenocarcinoma

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Synchronous malignancies are rare occurrences for which there may be a genetic link between two cancers or which may be simply coincidental. Although glioblastoma multiforme and esophageal adenocarcinoma have few clinical similarities there are no known biochemical or genetic links between the two malignancies. This case discussion details the synchronous occurrences of these two lesions and highlights possible clinical, biochemical, and genetic commonalities.
