Treatment strategies for synchronous, multiple peripheral lung cancers remain controversial. Bilobectomy for multiple lung cancers could cause pulmonary function impairment. We report two patients with synchronous multiple peripheral non-small cell lung cancers, who underwent multiple segmentectomy simultaneously. This is the first report of consecutive segmentectomy of two segments.
