Abstract Genetic factors are known to play a role in causing lung cancer. Twin cases of bronchioloalveolar, squamous, and anaplastic bronchogenic carcinoma have been previously reported. We describe mirror-image twins with adenocarcinoma of the lung occurring in mirror-image locations. They shared smoking and an occupational risk, carpentry, in addition to identical genetic backgrounds.
