We report a case of drain-site tumour recurrence 2 years after right colon resection for adenocarcinoma of the ascending colon. A large number of case reports concerning port-site tumour recurrences after laparoscopic procedures have been reported. However, post-laparotomy incision site cancer recurrence is considered a rare occurrence.
