520    Two to three decades ago, multiple primary malignancies 
       (MPM) were considered to be simply a clinical curiosity, 
       with sporadic reports, mostly single case descriptions, 
       found in the literature. While in the last few years, 
       analyses of larger series have been published, the number 
       of cases has still been relatively small and most of the 
       reports have addressed a single type of primary tumor and 
       its associations. With the improved prognosis and survival
       of cancer patients, MPM is becoming increasingly prevalent
       in this population, necessitating a better understanding 
       of the characteristics and associations of the 
       malignancies involved. Thus, as a prerequisite, a 
       universal definition and an internationally accepted 
       classification system, based on chronological, 
       pathological, clinical, and other parameters, are needed. 
       Moreover, much remains to be learned about the etiology of
       MPM, whether genetic, iatrogenic, or environmental. 
       Several of the hereditary syndromes, such as familial 
       adenomatous polyposis, hereditary non-polyposis colorectal
       cancer, hereditary breast-ovarian cancer, and multiple 
       endocrine neoplasia, are already well-known and their 
       characteristics in relation to MPM must be kept in mind. 
       Nonetheless, along with these syndromes, there are 
       sporadic and apparently casual associations between 
       primary neoplasms that can involve almost any part of the 
       body. This volume points out the clinical aspects of MPM 
       and discusses the diagnostic and therapeutic problems that
       are encountered in treating these patients. "DNA-guided" 
       surgery, currently confined to the treatment of patients 
       with hereditary syndromes, will, along with other novel 
       treatment strategies, no doubt play an increasingly 
       greater role in the therapy of MPM. This work presents 
       state-of-the-art information about MPM that is aimed at a 
       broad range of medical specialists, including surgeons, 
       endoscopists, oncologists, and geneticists, . The goal is 
       to improve our understanding of this group of diseases as 
       well the treatment of these patients.
