Multiple primary tumours in a single individual are reported in the literature with incidence which varies from 1% to 20%. Few common combinations are labelled as the syndrome and showed a common genetic association; however, sporadic cases of multiple primaries are relatively rare. Such a combination of Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) with pancreatic carcinoma is sparingly being reported in the literature. Here, we present a case of pancreatic carcinoma in a patient who was treated for renal cell carcinoma, 10-years-back. A few cases, which have been published before also could not establish any specific reason for this combination. We recommend considering a possibility of the second primary in any patient with unusual symptoms different from primary lesion and research for genetic association in these patients.
