We herein report the case of a curatively resected solitary inguinal lymph node metastasis from cecum cancer. Our patient was a 67-year-old male with cecum cancer with abdominal wall invasion. Three years after surgery, inguinal lymph node swelling was detected by a computed tomography examination. Further examination revealed no other metastases. Surgical resection was performed to remove the lesion, and microscopic examination revealed that cancer cells had metastasized. No recurrence was detected 3 years after the salvage surgery. Inguinal lymph node metastasis of cecum cancer has not been reported in the literature, but in our case salvage surgery resulted in a good outcome.
