Although incisional metastases following surgery for cervical cancer are extremely rare, port-site disease following minimal-access surgery is becoming increasingly reported. We report a case of a metastasis which occurred at a port site following laparoscopic removal of lymph nodes affected by cervical adenosquamous carcinoma. This report adds to the literature suggesting that cutaneous tumor deposition may be enhanced by this method of surgery.
