Adrenal metastasis from breast cancer rarely occurs in the course of this disease. Laparoscopic surgery has increased in the therapy for malignant tumors because of its lower morbidity and mortality compared with conventional surgical methods. However, complications such as the appearance of a port-site metastasis may also occur. Clinical examination and conventional cross-sectional imaging usually reveal this only at advanced stage. The authors reported on a case with abdominal wall port-site metastasis detected with F-FDG PET/CT 33 months after the laparoscopic removal of a late-onset, PET/CT-verified adrenal metastasis from lobular breast cancer.
