Background: Spillage of gallstone is uncommon during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Spillage in inflamed and friable gallbladder can occur during dissection of gallbladder from liver bed, injury to the gallbladder wall from grasping forceps and during removal of gallbladder from port site. The spilled stone in abdominal wall may cause abscess and sinus formation. Case Report: We treated a case of 52 year male presenting with discharging sinus from epigastric port site after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Conclusion: High index of suspicion should be maintained for spillage in a patient presenting with port site sinus after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
