ABSTRACT

The case of a young female patient with metachronous primary melanomas, advanced breast and pancreatic cancers is reported. The 5 different tumors diagnosed within six years, were managed with curative intent. Genetic analysis revealed the mutation of the R24P CDKN2A gene in a heterozygote form in both the patient and her father. Careful tertiary prevention during the follow-up of the patient is needed.
