EGFR and BRAF V600E mutations are both early driven and usually mutually exclusive. We report the case of a 59-year-old woman diagnosed with advanced lung adenocarcinoma harboring coexisting EGFR exon 18 G719A and BRAF V600E mutations. She experienced a long-term response to oral afatinib, with a progression-free survival rate of 33 months and an overall survival rate of 11 years. Lung adenocarcinoma with synchronous EGFR G719A and BRAF V600E mutations is rare and has not been previously reported. This case highlights the importance of an adequate response to afatinib and provides an optimal therapeutic option for such patients.
