• The diagnosis of Carney's triad requires the coexistence of at least two of three rare disorders, including gastric epithelioid leiomyosarcoma, pulmonary chondroma, and functioning extra-adrenal paraganglioma. Seventeen cases have been reported so far, occurring predominantly in young female patients. We report herein the 18th case of this entity and the first case, to our knowledge, where pulmonary metastases from a gastric leiomyosarcoma coexisted in a patient with benign pulmonary chondromas.
