Simultaneously triple head and neck malignancies are extremely rare. We report a case who had epithelial and mesenchymal malignant tumor with lymphoid malignancy in head and neck area. A patient who is 74 year old male patient presented to the otorhinolaryngology department with severe breathing difficulty due to laryngeal mass. The result of laryngeal biopsy was invasive SCCs, so patient underwent total larygectomy and bilateral level 2,3,4 neck disection operation. Primary 3 different type head and neck tumors were observed with histopathological examination. These were orderly invasive SCCs in larynx, B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in tongue root and one lymph node of left neck dissection material, Kaposi's sarcoma in one lymph node of right neck dissection material. Although synchronous head and neck tumors occurs very rare with laryngeal carcinoma, the neck dissection materials should be researched for synchronous tumors.
