Thymic carcinoid tumors are rare tumors which may be associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. Bronchial carcinoids are also rare tumors and associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. Coexisting of thymic and bronchial carcinoid tumors in this case is extremely rare. Herein, we report a unique case of coexistence of thymic and bronchial carcinoid tumors which were simultaneously resected via thoracotomy.
