Recurrence after surgery and chemoradiation in gastric adenocarcinoma is not an unusual phenomenon, but recurrence after intended curative resection and chemoradiation as metastasis to the skeletal muscle is very rare. We came across an unusual case of recurrence from an operated case of gastric adenocarcinoma about 14 months after surgery and chemoradiation. Our case presented as isolated metastasis to the left rectus abdominus muscle from operated case of carcinoma of the stomach 14 months after surgery. This case report of isolated metastasis to the skeletal muscle as recurrence from carcinoma of the stomach is among the very few reported cases of the skeletal muscle metastasis of its kind.
