Case report
Adenocarcinomas presenting as abdominal wall masses


Patients with abdominal wall masses as primary malignant tumours or metastatic disease are rare. Thorough evaluation with biopsy and imaging is required prior to surgical resection for treatment planning. We present a case series of three patients who presented with abdominal adenocarcinoma of unknown primary origin. All patients ultimately underwent surgical resection and final pathology showed a gynaecological origin for these tumours. Multidisciplinary management is required for these rare and complex tumours.
