We report a male patient who developed eight different cancers between ages 57 and 64. BRAF p.V600E mutation was detected in Langerhans cell histiocytosis, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, histiocytic sarcoma, melanoma, and adenocarcinoma of the lung. It was not detected in multiple myeloma, basal cell carcinoma, and papillary thyroid cancer. BRAF p.V600E was not detected in normal skin tissue biopsy indicating that BRAF V600E was a somatic mutation affecting cancer cells. The presence of eight different cancers with five of them positive for BRAF p.V600E in a single patient is unprecedented. This type of BRAF p.V600E-associated poly-neoplastic syndrome has never been reported in the medical literature.
