Abstract

A case of implantation metastasis in the abdominal wall following transabdominal laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy is reported. A cutaneous nodule was palpated at 1 of the laparoscopic ports 6 months after laparoscopic lymphadenectomy in a 66-year-old patient with stage T3pN1M0, grade 2 adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Aspiration cytology confirmed metastatic adenocarcinoma.
