Secondary malignancies following renal transplantation are not an uncommon event. In this report we considered one of the causes of posttransplant mortality. We report a renal transplant case and immune suppression treatment followed 11 years later by synchronous skin squamous cell carcinoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma that was diagnosed, presented and managed at the Oncology Center at Mansoura University.
