Umbilical metastases were encountered as the initial presentation of cecal adenocarcinoma in a 62-year-old woman. Intravenous infusion of 5-fluorouracil, along with intralesional injections of 10% 5-fluorouracil, resulted in regression of the tumor masses on the abdominal wall. Although umbilical metastasis is rare, its significance in diagnosing an otherwise silent colorectal cancer warrants the physician's awareness.
