A 65-year-old woman who underwent Appleby procedure for carcinoma of the pancreatic body (T4, N1, M0, Stage IVa) presented with a slowly growing nodule on her left abdomen, where the drain had been placed. On physical examination, we found a light red nodule measuring 18 mm covered by a crust on her left abdomen. A diagnosis of metastasis of pancreatic carcinoma was made based on biopsy findings. Since there were no other distant metastases or signs of recurrence, the nodule was resected and there has not been recurrence during the 2-year follow up to date.
