Single port operations are usually presented for appendectomies and cholecystectomies. We present the case of an 84-year-old man who presented recently to our department with Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA). A CT-colonography identified a caecal tumor, which was proven malignant by biopsies taken at a subsequent colonoscopy. Radiologically, this appeared to be an early T3 N0 tumor. Because of his favorable body habitus and well-localized lesion, we elected to perform his laparoscopic-assisted right hemicolectomy by a single port technique.
