Abstract

The application of laparoscopy for the resection of a malignancy has been a question for debate among many active surgeons. Cases of unapparent GB cancer especially, following a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, can occasionally be diagnosed. We add another case, which occurred in a 60- year-old male, at 22 and 45 months following a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gallstone, where there had been no evidence of a malignancy from a previous examination. The patient's metastatic port-site nodules were excised widely, and the patient is still alive.
