Abstract

Urachal carcinoma is an exceedingly rare tumor which may not present alarming clinical findings in the early stages and has a predilection for local invasion and recurrence. We present a case of urachal carcinoma managed by complete excision through laparoscopic approach. The patient two years later developed a pancreatic tumor and undergone a Whipple procedure.
