We describe an unusual case of massive subcutaneous metastases from a primary bladder cancer which appeared months after a pelvic laparoscopic lymph node dissection. Biopsy of a subcutaneous lesion (located at the site of a previously inserted trocar) revealed neoplastic transitional cells. The metastatic site and the unusual presentation of this massive metastatic progression suggest the pelvic laparoscopic lymph node dissection could be related to the neoplastic diseases.
