A 68-year-old man underwent laparoscopic low anterior resection for rectal carcinoma in December 2006. Nearly 19 mo after the operation, he developed recurrent rectal cancer with peritoneal metastasis. In September 2008, he subsequently underwent a laparotomy with a peritonectomy, omentectomy, splenectomy, and a Hartmann procedure. Hyperthermic intraperitoneal oxaliplatin 750 mg was administered. The patient was discharged with no postoperative complications and has been well with postoperative FOLFOX chemotherapy
