Among the more conservative management strategies intended to individualize the surgical treatment of vulval cancer, ispilateral groin dissection is proposed for T1-T2 lateral lesions. Since patients found negative for metastatic nodes in the ipsilateral groin and developing unexpected recurrences in the controlateral non-dissected groin have a poor outcome, it is useful to report such cases to better evaluate the safety of these less aggressive surgical procedures.
