A moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma has been detected at ipsilateral middle ear of a man aged 41 years old who underwent surgery with a diagnosis of oli­godendroglioma at left temporal lobe of brain 5 years ago. It is an uncommon finding to detect more than one pri­mary malignant tumor with distinct pathological features in the same patient. The aim of this report is to remind that there may be tumors with distinct pathological features in the presence of a primary tumor.
