Due to the advancement in laparoscopic surgery in gynecology, laparoscopic surgery of patients with gynecologic malignancy is widely used. A 69-year-old woman who had elevated serum level of CA-125 and malignant ascites was transferred from general surgery after laparoscopic peritoneal biopsy. She complained about 2.5 cm sized abdominal wall mass which developed only 1week after surgery. With the impression of ovarian cancer with port-site metastasis, we performed debulking operation and abdominal wall mass excision. The final pathology confirmed primary peritoneal serous papillary adenocarcinoma. Whenever a female patient has elevated serum level of CA-125 and ascites cytology shows adenocarcinoma, she should be referred to gynecologic oncologists first. And considering the primary peritoneal or ovarian cancer, primary debulking operation by gynecologic oncologist is recommended.
Key Words: Port-site metastasis, Primary peritoneal cancer, Ovarian cancer
