Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is a safe and oncologically appropriate treatment modality for patients with renal cell carcinoma.[1] Till date, there are only 3 cases of port site metastasis reported after laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. We herein report another case of port site recurrence after transperitoneal radical nephrectomy for a 5 cm renal tumor.
