We present a case of port-site metastasis in a 60-year-old Taiwanese woman who underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy. Seventeen months after surgery, the patient presented with a firm mass (4 cm × 4 cm in size) over the site of the umbilical surgical wound. Wide excision of the umbilicus was performed. Histological examination of the excised mass showed umbilical adenocarcinoma with no evidence of peritoneal nodules, and the patient was discharged to receive further chemotherapy treatment. After 15 months of follow-up, there was no indication of tumor metastasis.
