Synchronous gastrointestinal lesions of the abdomen are uncommon. Although laparoscopic gastric resection and colonic resection have been previously described, the combined laparoscopic resection of these 2 organs is unique. We report a case of a 72-year-old man with in situ gastric cancer and high-grade dysplasia of a colon polyp who underwent successful laparoscopic resection of both lesions. This report highlights the importance of preoperative planning and port placement in combined laparoscopic procedures.
