Multiple primary malignancies occurring simultaneously are rare. Even rarer is the concurrence of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A number of theories have been proposed regarding predisposing factors. This case report describes a 64year old male with chronic hepatitis B, a lesion in the right lobe of the liver, and a left renal mass. Synchronous extrahepatic primary malignancies have been reported in a few studies worldwide, but with varying incidences. It is most common in the older age group without gender differentiation.
