Multiple gastric cancers have several clinicopathologic characteristics that are different from those of solitary cancer and the incidence of multiple gastric cancers has recently been on the increase due to the development of diagnostic endoscopy, chromoscopy, and radiological examination. It is important to determine the proper surgical area after evaluating the synchronous multiple gastric cancer by performing closed endoscopy and radiological evaluation prior to surgery. Generally, elderly men have a relatively high incidence of multiple gastric cancers and the well differentiated type is most common. There have been reports on the diagnoses of multiple gastric cancers of elderly men and the well differentiated type, but there are no prior reports concerned with multiple gastric cancers of younger patients and the different pathologic differentiation. We experienced a case of synchronous multiple early gastric cancer of a younger man and this showed different pathologic differentiation. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;38:34-37)
