Background: The port site metastasis in prostate cancer(PCa) after laparoscopic radical prostatectomy(LRP) is an uncommon metastatic pattern of PCa.

Case presentation: We described an 81-year-old male patient who was admitted because of dysuria. Physical examination and imaging study indicated that the port site metastasis in PCa after LRP, and laboratory analysis revealed elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA). The diagnosis was established after tumor resection, and then confirmed by pathology according to immunohistochemical stain. Androgen

deprivation therapy(ADT) was given.

Conclusions: Our present case indicated that the port site metastasis in PCa after LRP is rare. Tumor resection is the first choice of treatment and ADT should be performed in case of highly PSA level.
